Could the San Francisco Giants get back to the postseason in 2024? Bip Roberts thinks they’ve added some really nice pieces to the puzzle.

Former Oakland A’s player and current NBC Sports Bay Area analyst Bip Roberts joined The Drive Guys Thursday to talk about Opening Day of the 2024 MLB season, where the Giants stand at the moment and his thoughts on the Oakland situation. Plus, are the Giants a tough out for any team this season?

All that and more on Sactown Sports.

“They’re gonna make teams work this year, they’re not going to be a pushover,” Bip Roberts said. “We know it’s a long season, the team has to gel because they brought these guys in a little late in spring training. But [Matt] Chapman, wherever he goes, he’s gonna fit in. And [Blake] Snell, wherever he gets the ball, he’s gonna make sure that he gets it across the plate.”
