As the San Francisco Giants gear up for a brutal playoff run, we fans try to create playoff scenarios for the team. And, as we think, Bruce Bochy makes his decisions.
He has experience with this, since he has been to the playoffs many times, been to the World Series twice and come away with the championship once. However, he will also have to consider how his players match up with the Reds.
He will have some tough decisions to make. He will have to manage the team perfectly, so they don’t get beat by a team that seemingly has more talent than them. Bochy has more of a set lineup than he did in 2010, but his decisions will still matter. Whoever sets foot on the field must be well-prepared and ready to step up.
Can his players step up? Yes. But, who will step up when needed, and how do the Giants players compare to the Reds players? Find out as I break this potential NLDS (or NLCS) series down by position.
Note: The grading scale is based out of 10 points. One player (or duo) will receive a certain amount of points, while the other will receive the leftovers. If I think Buster Posey deserves to blow out Dioner Navorro, I might give him eight points and Navorro two points.
