Logan Webb Frustrated With Giants
San Francisco Giants ace pitcher Logan Webb shared his frustrations last night after his complete-game victory against the San Diego Padres Monday.
“I’m tired. I’m tired of losing. It’s not fun,” Webb told reporters, according to NBC Sports. “We’ve got to make some big changes in here to create that winning culture. We want to show up every single year and try to win the whole thing. I mean, I think we’re there. I don’t know what it is. I’m just sick of losing, to be honest. It’s never fun.”
The Giants sit four-and-a-half games out of the remaining wild card spot with just five games left in the regular season. It is very unlikely they will make the playoffs and the season will end with disappointment once again. Ever since the Giants captured a World Series title in 2014, the team has been consistently inconsistent.
Over that span, the Giants have only made the playoffs twice and have failed to make it past the divisional series both times. The 2023 season, in particular, has been filled with ups and downs for the Giants.
They won 10 straight in June and seemed to be the hottest team in baseball. Just after this streak, they lost 11 of their next 15 games, as their offense struggled big time. The Giants own the fourth-worst batting average with the eight-fewest runs across MLB–and their run support for Webb has been abysmal.
It is understandable that Logan Webb is frustrated because his 11-13 record this season doesn’t accurately reflect his individual play. He ranks in the top-10 in the NL for ERA and WHIP and will more than likely finish in the top-5 for NL CY Young voting this year.
If the Giants can figure out how to keep their bats more consistent next season, they could easily make the playoffs. This issue if inconsistency needs to be figured or this team will continue to be its own worst enemy for years to come.
