Rebuilding Now Could Save The Giants Years Of Losing

Question: If everyone ends up tanking, will anyone really benefit from it?

The time to act came a year ago, and the opportunity was purposefully missed.

The time to recognize that is now, and the next steps are ones the San Francisco Giants have hidden from, ignored or completely ghosted for well more than a year. Instead, the franchise that believes its fan base will never accept a tear down-and-rebuild nestled itself deeper and deeper into a hole with every ill-advised signing and trade since early last season when their postseason chances were washed out.

Now, reality is in plain sight as the Bay Area fog lifts to expose the serious trouble the Giants are in at all levels. Fixing those troubles means no longer sticking Band-Aids on a terminal disease; it means recognizing the best way to get the franchise back on a winning track.
