Somewhere along the route, the Giants hit a timeout on the rebuild button.
Oh, they are still committed to the development of players as always, and are aware of the fact that in the long run, their only hope of sustainable competition is to bring young talents into the major leagues. But in late August, when this season could have gone in two different directions, the players decided to make an unexpected decision.
There will not be a rookie rookie lineup. Jaylin Davis is not here. Heliot Ramos will not make a cameo. The experiment has slowed down.
The Giants reversed their season in late August and carried out this work with the support of familiar veterans and older newcomers (such as Wilmer Flores, Donovan Solano and Darin Ruf). The expansion of the playoffs allowed them to chase their dreams, and the rookies had no time to get their feet wet.
The Giants have not fired as many people from an impending retreat in the past three years, but Mauricio Dubon, Logan Webb and Caleb Baraga ( Caleb Baragar) are three people who have highs and lows and move towards the future. All three were forwards and centers on Wednesday. They defeated the Colorado Rockies 7-2, returning the Giants to over .500 and leading the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers to get the final postseason. Competition seats.
DuPont hit a three-game winning streak of home runs and tied for fifth place. Baraga and Weber ensured their competitiveness so far. They totaled 1
Manager Gabe Kapler said: “What Logan, Mauricio, and Caleb have in common is competitiveness and level of preparation.” “I’m sure it may make up for some experience, preparation and motivation. They succeeded. The reason is this.”

Baragar started from the beginning and did so on the second day of discovering that he would be in the opener. Andrew Bailey texted him at 11pm on Tuesday evening to suggest the possibility, and then the staff drew up a plan to ensure Baraga feels comfortable. Tell him to warm up in the bullpen as usual and he ran from midfield to the top of the first game.
Baragar scored a pointless first and gave way to Webb after allowing a double lead for the second time. For Webber, this is new, but it is definitely not something he would avoid. Two weeks ago, Weber thought he would come out of the bullpen in a double match on Sunday. He was upset about it, but it finally started when Kevin Gausman needed an MRI.
This time, Weber did fly out of the railing. He threw 5 1/3 solid rounds to lead the bullpen. This outing was the fiercest for Weber in a month, giving him his first victory since August 21. He said he was “open-minded and excited” to participate in the competition.
Weber said, “I don’t remember the last time I came in with someone, but it’s cool.” “I think it’s funny. I don’t know if that will change the game plan or mindset, but this is my first time. Experienced. It’s cool. I’m very happy to be able to do this today.
“It’s a bit like jumping out of my head and going out to participate in the competition as much as I can. The last five or six (outings) I have thought too much. Today I just went out, I just want to participate in the competition and put everything Stay there, I think this is an important reason why I can do what I do.”
DuPont settled as a midfield scorer long ago, and he joked on Wednesday that he never even carried infield gloves again. He enters the night of .285, but many of his barrels have nothing to show. With two in fifth place, he got a lower slider and drove it to the left. There is no doubt that the ball will eventually pass to the ball, which DuPont called the biggest home run of his career. Kappler said the canoe exploded.
DuPont said: “It’s fun. It’s fun.” “They have always had a hard time getting me to hit the warning track. In the end, it felt pretty good when I went through a big situation.”

This victory allowed the Giants to defeat them 28-27, allowing them to control their own destiny. The road ahead is not easy. Before the four-game series with the Padres, there is a duel with the Rockies. They will rely on all their experience in the canoe. But young people are also ready to join.
Weber said: “Hug it, know that you have done it before, and be excited about it.” “This is what the veterans really say, and we try to do it every time we go there.”
