2017: 54-108 last in AL West. Draft position 4th

Overview: Under new management, yet again. The Giants franchise, once very competitive in a tough AL West, has fallen in part due to a lack of consistent management. They have been under better control the last few years, and are showing signs of turning the corner. For starters, they have a complete roster without utilizing platoons at every position.
They took early advantage in the trade market this year, prior to new management taking over. This leaves them without obvious overlaps to bolster the long term outlook. However, their core players arenít old and could be around for the next run toward contention.
Some are still waiting for this Giants ownership to make its mark. However, the smart play is the wait and see approach and the Giants are doing that for now.
 
Starting Rotation: Zach Davies is the youngest of the starters and he may end up having the best year. Better suited as a #3 starter he may masquerade as the top man. Chavez Blach and Tomlin will get their share of starts and while playing at home they should be able to keep their fly balls inside the park. Kendall Graveman should have better years ahead, but this year will challenge him. In the right match ups he could keep his team in the game. Matt Cain could be the odd man out, but there is sentimental value here and I bet he sees the mound in front of the home crowd. Carson Fulmer could get some spot starts as could Luis Cessa to show off some of the future.
This rotation has seen better days but, specifically at home, could still find a few wins.

Bullpen: There is no true closer on this team, but they havenít had a need for one in several years. Chase Whitely headlines this group with George Kontos providing some assistance. The others arenít likely to be management favorites and could get replaced via the draft.

Starting Lineup: None better than Giant backstop Buster Posey. He rakes and will hold down the middle of the order. Brandon Belt will offer protection and Joe Panik will be on base in front. These three will excite the fans often and score runs. In the outfield, a mix and match platoon system will be employed. Pence and Renfroe make the list as the lefty mashers while new arrival Brandon Nimmo will beat on right handers, albeit in short season duty. In center field, Heredia and Lagares will form a reasonable pair, with Lagares giving good defense to boot. At third, the combination of Sandoval Arroyo and Tomlinson will get things done.

Overall, a good 2-4 with supporting actors will get some runs scored. Probably not enough to overcome the rotation on a regular basis, however they will have their moments. Adding a big OF bat would make a difference, but wins this season arenít their top priority.

Defense and Speed: Defense is a strong suit for this squad. Posey at Catcher, Belt at 1st, Crawford at short and Lagares in center will prevent runs. The others are average defenders so there arenít really any gaping holes. On the base paths, there isnít a ton of speed. Tomlinson can steal, and Lagares and Posey will occasionally get theirs as well.

Surplus/Deficiencies: The Giants donít have a ton extra. They could deal starts, but they would be filler starts and the market for those isnít overly good.

Outlook: A last place finish has set up the Giants with a lottery selection. The lottery didnít do them any favors and they will select 4th. That should net them a very good player/prospect and the can put a new stamp on the roster.
If the Giants opted to not hold on to players from the MLB roster, they could make some players available next year, or strategically this year, to again build for the future.
However, barring either insane luck or a couple of shrewd trades, this team should once again finish last in the division. There is a possibility to get out of the bottom, but its tough to move in this division.
