Crawford hoping Giants regain ’21 magic with revamped lineup initially appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Winter will quickly start becoming spring, which implies the 2023 MLB season is nearly here. The Giants’ pitchers and catchers will report on Feb. 16 and position gamers will get here on Feb. 21.
Shortstop Brandon Crawford thinks the Giants’ offseason relocations can permit the group to reproduce their 2021 season when they won a franchise-record 107 wins and the NL West.
“Well, on paper, in 2021, we weren’t supposed to win 107 games and win the division either,” Crawford stated Tuesday on “KNBR Tonight with F.P. Santangelo.” “I think we have a better team on paper, at least going into this year than we did in 2021. So I think we kind of look at that and see the improvements that we made. Obviously, not what everybody hoped for, some of the bigger names out there that ended up not coming to us, but I definitely think we made some good moves and got our team better with some of the moves that were made.
“I believe we concentrate on those and how we can all improve and type of ideally regain a few of the type from a few of the much better days we have actually had. I think recalling at it, 2021 was a terrific season for a great deal of men.”
Crawford is positive ahead of a brand-new season in spite of San Francisco starting out on free-agent targets. Giants fans were anticipating a huge name to develop the franchise around — nevertheless, that kind of finalizing never ever emerged.
Aaron Judge went back to the New York Yankees after signing a nine-year, $360 million agreement while San Francisco revoked the 13-year, $350 million contract with its No. 2 choice, Carlos Correa, after raising issues over a previous ankle injury.
