With a 69-75 record on the year, the San Francisco Giants have been nowhere near the team they were in the early part of the decade when they won the World Series in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi definitely agrees, and he plans on revamping the entire organization, starting with the scouts who are responsible for finding prospects with the potential to deliver another championship to the Giants.

It's been confirmed by Zaidi that the Giants let go of almost half of the team's scouts. While it may seem like quite a bold move to overhaul this much of his scouting department, it makes sense considering that the Giants have consistently had the worst farm system in the entire MLB recently.

They've been undergoing some massive rebuilds of their farm system since 2018, but so far there haven't been too many signs that scouts are finding the right talent to develop for the future.

Zaidi joined the Giants from the rival Los Angeles Dodgers this past offseason, and he's been trying to make his mark on the team. A move like this is a big first step as he revamps the organization from the bottom up.
