Prep Those DVRs: 'The Franchise: A Season with the San Francisco Giants' To Get Previewed April 13

Showtime and MLB Productions have revealed a little more information about the docu-series following the World Champion San Francisco Giants.

The companies also released a great trailer, which unfortunately is not embeddable. Check out the trailer here.

It may still provide some thrilling moments in March, but the overall quality of play has dropped considerably. A variety of reasons can be cited, including the yearly exodus of top underclassmen to the NBA, a continued decaying of fundamentals at the high school level (thanks, AAU ball!) that forces coaches to use strategies that feature athleticism, rather than skill, and a moving away from team-first attitudes among better players aching to be playing professionally.
