    Zaidi: Bringing back Posey a 'high priority' for Giants

    Zaidi: Bringing back Posey a 'high priority' for Giants

    On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick discusses the San Francisco Giants' season-ending press conference with president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi and manager Gabe Kapler. Zaidi spoke about the team's desire to retain Buster Posey, who's going to spend some time talking with his wife and deciding his future. The Giants hold a $22M club option on Posey for 2022, and it's a no-brainer for the Giants to at least pick that up, if not extend Posey, assuming he wants to keep playing. Joey Bart doesn't appear ready to take over a primary role at the major-league level, and the free-agent market offers no solutions at the catcher position.
    Ben also discusses how the Giants will approach Brandon Belt and Kris Bryant's free agencies, as well as all members of the starting rotation reaching free agency besides Logan Webb. There are a lot of talented free-agent pitchers out there this winter, as well as young stud position players like Carlos Correa and Corey Seager. Expect the Giants to be among the most active teams in baseball this winter as they have money to spend and a 107-win season to back up.

    Giants enter offseason with money to spend and holes to fill

    Giants enter offseason with money to spend and holes to fill

    On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick discusses the San Francisco Giants' upcoming offseason. He talks about the key players set to reach free agency, and the critical decisions the Giants will have to make. The first order of business is Buster Posey, who has a $22M club option for 2022 (with a $3M buyout). Posey has said that he wants to take some time with his wife to discuss his future, so it remains to be seen if he's 100 percent committed to playing next year and beyond. Brandon Belt is set to reach free agency, as is the Giants' entire starting rotation besides Logan Webb. Kevin Gausman, Anthony DeSclafani, and Alex Wood are all impending free agents, and Johnny Cueto has a way-too-expensive $22M club option that will be declined with a $5M buyout. Brandon Belt will likely be offered the $18.4M qualifying offer. Kris Bryant is set to reach free agency.
    Players who will be back because they're still under club control include Webb, LaMonte Wade Jr., Evan Longoria, Brandon Crawford, Tommy La Stella, Jake McGee, Darin Ruf, and Mike Yastrzemski, among others.

    Giants' magical season ends in heartbreak—and controversy

    Giants' magical season ends in heartbreak—and controversy

    On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick tries to make sense of the San Francisco Giants' magical season ending abruptly on Thursday night at the hands of their bitter rivals. Wilmer Flores was ruled to have swung at a two-strike Max Scherzer offering, even though he didn't, and just like that, the game and the season was over.
    Ultimately, the Giants didn't score enough runs to win. They scored just 10 runs in the five-game series, an average of just two runs per game. The Dodgers' pitching and defense shut the Giants down for most of the series, and in the end it was too much to overcome.
    Logan Webb stepped up again and was brilliant, but the Giants could not give him the support he needed. Now our attention turns to a long offseason, one in which the Giants will be primed to spend big and have a ton of holes to fill.
    It was a magical and incredible 2021 season for the Giants. They were supposed to win 75 games, per projection systems, but instead they won 107, they won the NL West, and they took the all-time talented Dodgers to the final pitch of NLDS Game 5. There's nothing to be ashamed of with this group. They exceeded everyone's expectations, and from top to bottom they deserve immense credit. They took a quantum leap forward in 2021, and the bar has been raised for 2022 and beyond.

    Inbox: Are the Giants winning Game 5?

    Inbox: Are the Giants winning Game 5?

    It all comes down to this. On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick answers listeners' questions about the San Francisco Giants' NLDS Game 5 tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Among the questions asked and answered are:
    Are we winning Game 5?
    Give us some stats that’ll make us feel good about Thursday’s game.
    Do you think the Giants will be aggressive early against Julio Urías?
    Have the Giants had any success against Urías this year?
    Do you think home plate umpire Doug Eddings will play a role?
    With everyone available in the bullpen, how aggressive do you expect Gabe Kapler to be?
    Webb followed by Kevin Gausman (if necessary) followed by Camilo Doval I would imagine if things go as planned, right?
    Has Tyler Rogers been overused in this series and should he be considered unavailable for Game 5? Besides Doval and Gausman, who can be trusted to relieve Webb if/when necessary?

    Giants falter in Game 4 as bats stay ice cold

    Giants falter in Game 4 as bats stay ice cold

    On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick discusses the San Francisco Giants' 7-2 loss in Game 4 of the NLDS, with the Dodgers forcing a decisive Game 5 in San Francisco on Thursday night. Anthony DeSclafani started for the Giants, and he was shaky from the first pitch. Manager Gabe Kapler did his best to keep the Giants in the game, deploying his bullpen extremely aggressively, but they were uncharacteristically wild and the offense just could muster enough to compete.
    Overall, the offensive numbers for the Giants in this series are not pretty. They're not getting on base nearly enough, and half of their position players on the roster are hitless, amounting to an 0 for 39 funk for the seven Giants combined.
    Regardless, the series is tied at two games apiece, and the Giants have a great shot to advance on Thursday. Logan Webb will take the mound, with Kevin Gausman, Camilo Doval, and other high leverage Giants relievers ready to go. The right-handed lineup looks good on paper, and they'll have a chance to break out against Julio Urías, who was very good in a Game 2 Dodgers win.

    Giants blank Dodgers, take 2-1 NLDS lead

    Giants blank Dodgers, take 2-1 NLDS lead

    On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick details the San Francisco Giants' thrilling 1-0 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers in LA. In a game that heavily favored the Dodgers because of the pitching match-up, Alex Wood out-dueled Max Scherzer. Scherzer allowed a solo home run to Evan Longoria, and that was the only scoring in the game. Wood pitched into the fifth inning, and manager Gabe Kapler aggressively deployed Tyler Rogers to finish out the frame. He did, and he also pitched the sixth and into the seventh. Jake McGee relieved him, and got two critical outs. Brandon Crawford saved the day with a leaping catch on a Mookie Betts line drive. Then, rookie Camilo Doval got the final six outs in order to close out the 1-0 shutout. Gavin Lux thought he tied the game with two outs in the ninth, but strong wind at Dodger Stadium may have kept the ball in the yard. Regardless, both teams dealt with the wind all night. Longoria hit his home run through it, and Mike Yastrzemski was similarly robbed in the sixth.
    The win sets the Giants up to potentially clinch the series on Tuesday night. Anthony DeSclafani will start for San Francisco, with the Dodgers yet to announce a starter. It may very well be Walker Buehler on short rest, which could set up a potential Logan Webb vs. Julio Urias matchup in a decisive Game 5, if it comes to that.
