When they could least afford it, against one of the top pitchers in
MLB, Johnny Cueto couldn't keep the Dodgers off the scoreboard.
Kershaw is usually tough, but the Giants have gotten to him when it
counted ..... not today.

And maybe Cueto's too. He can opt-out this year.
 
I don't know what to hope. If he pitches well, he will become a free
agent. If he doesn't and maybe gets injured (knock on wood), he will
probably stay four more years.
 
All in all, I am hoping for a great year from Cueto.

This is why you need a vital farm system. Even if they got Harper, his
number may go down in this park.
 
So signing him would be a risk and he's probably going to get more than
$30 million per year.
 
Giants benefited from homegrown Belt and Crawford, though their offense
wasn't that consistent.
 
Now they are on big contracts so they need to get some cheap young players.
 
That reminds me, Panik must be coming up due in a year or two.

Panik only makes 600k.
I can't see him making more than 5 mil.

Nunez is a free agent. He makes 4.2 this yr.

Plus or minus 3-5 wins. That could mean 88, 90 wins.
 
Or it could mean 82 or 90 wins.

Late innings games won the same way and the same guy missed the end
both times. Once as a kid and once as an older adult.
