If the Giants are indeed finished, they would only be interesting for glimpses toward the future.
One of those will come Sunday.
Bruce Bochy told reporters Thursday, after the Giants’ 1-0 loss to the Cubs at Wrigley Field, that Logan Webb would get the ball after Madison Bumgarner’s Saturday start in Oakland.
Webb will be on extra rest, having made his big-league debut Saturday in an 11-6 victory in Arizona. The 22-year-old, who had made just one appearance with Triple-A Sacramento, went five solid innings, allowing two runs (one earned) and striking out seven.
Webb, from Rocklin, will debut in front of an Oakland crowd before a San Francisco. He surely will have plenty of fans in the stands, as he even had a sizable following at Chase Field.
