Giants Suffer Loss to Marlins

Marlins

You would be wrong if you thought the 2017 season could not get any worse for the San Francisco Giants. The season continues to be an embarrassment of epic proportions for the proud franchise that has hosted three World Series trophies in recent years. However, those championships seem like a distant memory these days. The Giants can seemingly do nothing right. They fail at every aspect of the game. It might not be much longer until many of the seats at AT&T Park are empty. Attendance has never been a problem for the Giants since back in the days when they inhabited Candlestick Park. That was a long time ago. However, Giants fans are not going to keep paying top dollar to see the horrible team that is currently being put on the field. Major changes will need to be made in the off season.

On Monday, the Giants suffered their 73rd loss of the year. They are now 26 games under .500. The Marlins battered the Giants by a score of 8-3. Ty Blach got battered for six earned runs in six innings. He also gave up two homers in the game. The loss evens his record on the season at 8-8. On the Marlins side of the ledger, Giancarlo Stanton socked his 43rd home run of the season. This was significant because it broke Gary Sheffield's team record for one season. Stanton has been one of the game's great power hitters since he debuted in 2010. His problem has been staying healthy. He has only played in 150 games one time in his career. He might just end up being a player who misses a lot of games every year. However, there are few players at his level when he is healthy.

Unfortunately, the Giants can only dream of having a player at the level of Stanton. The future looks bleak for the Giants. There is obviously very little talent at the Major League level. However, the thing that is much more concerning is the fact that the farm system of the Giants is barren right now. There are no monster prospects that are ready to step in and fill the void in the next year or two. This has got to make Giants ownership very worried about what the fan reaction will be if the team continues to be this bad. Only the Cubs and Dodgers draw people when they are bad.
