The Giants are probably set with the rotation, and that’s fine.

The starting pitching would have been a lot more impressive with better defense and health. It’s worth remembering that when the 2017 season started 600 years ago, a lot of Giants fans were optimistic. Even after the second-half collapse of 2016, there was still a feeling that this year’s team was going to be a strong contender. It all started with the starting pitching.
