San Francisco Giants: Posey, Crawford & Melancon Help Team USA Win WBC

Here we take a look at how San Francisco Giants players Brandon Crawford, Buster Posey and Mark Melancon helped team USA win the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

What will the Giants look like in five years?

What will the Giants look like in five years?

Different. They’ll look very, very different. Five years ago, Aubrey Huff was the Giants’ starting left fielder on Opening Day. Buster Posey had played in spring games, but no one was sure if he was ever going to be the same following his injury. Tim Lincecum was a four-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award winner coming off a fantastic season, and his career was holdin’ steady. Brandon Crawford was an unproven no-hit, all-glove shortstop who represented the biggest risk the organization had taken in years.

World Baseball Classic update: Brandon Crawford is hot, and Buster Posey hit a dinger

Also, Brandon Crawford is doing well at the plate. Before Brandon Crawford went to play for the United States in the World Baseball Classic, he was cold. He was 2-for-17 in the Cactus League, which means as much as 17 March at-bats usually means, but that doesn’t mean it was easy to watch. Crawford is easy to watch again. He’s hot. Also, he’s playing good baseball again, and you’d better believe that I get to use that joke twice in the same post. He’s 5-for-11 so far in the WBC, and he’s roping doubles all over the park. Three of them, to be exact. This means about as much...
