Before Opening Day was pushed back, these San Francisco Giants learned it doesn’t always go as planned

A new era of Giants baseball was supposed to begin Thursday at Dodger Stadium.

After 13 seasons managing the club, Bruce Bochy stepped away and Gabe Kapler was hired to lead the next generation of Giants. After four seasons in Madison Bumgarner’s shadow, Johnny Cueto was supposed to fill the role of staff ace and take the ball on Opening Day.

Error 0:

Hunter Pence was supposed to make his triumphant return to his old club, Buster Posey was supposed to become the seventh player in franchise history to make 10 Opening Day starts at the same position and Alyssa Nakken was supposed to debut as the first female coach in baseball.
