The San Francisco Giants have the best record in the National League. No one is taking them seriously.
Yes, it is those San Francisco Giants who has a record of 42-21 as of June 9th. The Giants are playing really well but most baseball analyst didn’t expected them to be this good. The Giants have been good in even-numbered years (like winning the World Series in 2010 and 2012.)
Let’s look at the numbers. The Giants are 19th in the major leagues in offense but is being lead by the resurgence of Mike Morse who have helped out the Giants in a big way. He is batting .278 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI’s. He is the driving force of this offense.
The pitching is the driving force.
The Giants pitching staff is fourth in the majors in ERA and opponents batting average. The win leaders for the Giants is none other than Madison Bumgarner who has 8 wins with 3 losses. What’s even more surprising is the resurgence of one Tim Hudson who is leading the team in ERA with a 1.97 ERA. He could make a case for winning the CY Young.
The Giants have been known to win in even number years. Can they win this season?
