Kapler wasn't dealt good cards either. But this roster is far better than the 2018 roster, and somewhat better than the 2019 roster.
And the Giants roster isn't at all better on paper, and also not much younger. Their GM - and yes, the manager and coaching staff - just got more out of them.
It doesn't matter if it's Mackanin, Kapler or Girardi, the common denominator for the last 10 years is the organization.
(Except in Sandberg's case, he actually did stink.)
Think we'll have a pitching coach stick around for two years for the first time in forever? He's a Driveline guy too.
