Farhan Zaidi believes Giants bullpen can be one of baseball’s best

SAN FRANCISCO—The belief throughout much of the offseason was that Farhan Zaidi would trade his best relievers in order to get pieces that could help the Giants win in future years. Recently, Zaidi put his own twist on that plan when asked if he could still swing deals centered around bullpen arms.

“It definitely is a position of depth for us,” he said. “We’ll kind of continue to listen because I think it’s a relative position of depth, but I think for us to be successful with the composition of this club, we’ll have to have one of the best bullpens in baseball.”

The Giants are not on anybody’s list of contenders, and they haven’t significantly upgraded a club that’s lost 187 games the past two seasons. But that also doesn’t mean they’re raising the white flag in March, especially not Bruce Bochy’s last one with the club, and Zaidi believes the bullpen can help keep this team in the race.

Ah, spring- when hope springs eternal….

The way bullpens go I'd say there's a non-zero chance that Cal State -- Fullerton's bullpen might be baseball's best.
