The SF Giants are headed for October with the blueprint they’ve used to shock baseball

SAN FRANCISCO – It took until the final day of a truncated season for the 2020 Giants to end with a postseason contention that made the brunt of the loss to the playoff-bound Padres clear.

Farhan Zaidi later said, “This disappointment will inspire us to aspire for more next year.” “Being the playoff team next year will definitely be our goal.”

Almost no one believed the Giants’ president of baseball operations could achieve that goal, but his 2021 club has done so much more than that. With a 9-1 win over the Padres on Monday night at Oracle Park, the Giants (94-50) became the first major league club to earn a berth after the season and now have their sights set on even greater heights.

“I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved,” Buster Posey said on NBC Sports Bay Area Postgame. “As far as regular season teams go, that’s number one for me.”

Expectations have been recalculated overnight in San Francisco, where a team that was projected to finish under .500 for the fifth consecutive season is now seen as a legitimate World Series contender. The surprising transformation begins with Zaidi at the helm, who in November 2018 became the organization’s top baseball executive and turned the Giants into the most consistent team ever with a long list of “smart baseball moves,” back to his introductory Promised press conference.
