A tough first impression for the SF Giants

First impressions matter, and for the 2024 San Francisco Giants, it was not a good first impression.

The Giants lost their season opener 6-4 to the Padres on Thursday despite Logan Webb’s strong start and a 3-2 lead in the seventh inning.

Still, it wasn’t all bad.

Let’s go over three positives and dwell on three negatives from the Giants’ Opening Day loss.

UP: Logan Webb was fantastic

» It wasn’t perfect, but it was the kind of performance we’ve come to expect from the Giants ace.

All those worries about his wickedly poor spring training were put to bed early as Webb was moving his sinker around the zone and throwing sharp sliders to go with his sandbag of a changeup.

Sure, he gave up two runs, but the sequence that brought those two runs home was a leadoff walk, an inside-out single, a seeing-eye single, a two-strike bloop single, and a dribbler to first base.

If Webb didn’t have some bad luck, he’d have no luck at all.

Webb threw 97 pitches on Thursday and deserved better.
