The San Francisco Giants have been enduring yet another troubling season, which will now be their second straight missing the playoffs, and in disappointing fashion. As a result, the blame had to be placed somewhere.
The team is reportedly parting ways with general manager Bobby Evans.
There’s going to be a shakeup in the Giants front office this offseason.
Evans has been the GM since before the start of the 2015 season, and since then the team has missed the playoffs three times and registered two losing campaigns. While this is certainly not attributed to the work of Evans, who dealt with unforeseen circumstances regarding Madison Bumgarner for two years in a row, among other things out of his control, something had to be done.
This is not acceptable for the organization given their run of success over the past decade. The Giants have won three World Series titles in the past nine years and their even-year magic has come to a screeching halt for the second consecutive time.
And with the rest of the NL West (with the exception of the San Diego Padres) only getting better and scarier, the Giants felt like this was the move to get them back on track.
