Justin Maxwell is earning a full-time starting gig, right?
If anyone talks trash to you at all, Giants fans, the response should be, "Three rings," and nothing more. It's a real drop-the-mic thing to say.
Chances to stick: I actually think the chances are pretty high. Sure, Hunter Pence is coming back and there's good talent here in several areas, but the rotation behind Madison Bumgarner is nothing but question marks and the offense right now leaves a lot to be desired. But you know what, SF You've been spoiled in the past five years!
Overreaction: Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt, Matt Cain and Jake Peavy already hurt. The curse of the odd year is upon us. Start planning for next season, Giants fans.
You guys need to do better than 'keep picking against us, that's how we like it.' That doesn't make sense when you don't actually play for the team and the last two times the Giants won it all, they missed the playoffs the following season. I also think they'll spend most of the season ranked lower than right here. The champs get the benefit of the doubt early, though.
To help balance things out from the quasi-negative intro, let's note the upside. Getting healthy and productive seasons from Angel Pagan, Brandon Belt and Matt Cain would be a huge boost that this ballclub didn't have last season. Joe Panik was only up for 73 regular-season games, too. There are still quality bullpen arms and there is, of course, the presence of Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey. Hunter Pence is pretty reliable himself. Even if this isn't the best team, this is a quality team. And as they've shown, all it takes is entry into the postseason to win it all. They have that pedigree and I'm not willing to go any lower here.
Only five players in the majors this season reached double digits in triples. Two (Brandon Crawford and Hunter Pence) play for the Giants.
Joe Panik has really solidified second base for them. Had he played more than 69 games to this point, he could be making a run at Rookie of the Year in the NL.
Sergio Romo has only allowed a run in two of his past 19 outings, though both came this month.
Angel Pagan has long been underrated and I've mentioned that before, but this divide is pretty amazing and was pointed out by commenter "spartacus007" -- the Giants are 53-32 when Pagan starts. When he doesn't? 26-33.
