    A week ago it was the Cardinals. You jinxed them, so now it's the Giants turn. Good job, Ice House.

    Once they got Pence back against my Reds that was the final piece Bear. I agree with this.

    Before the last years season started.
    The Giants were 29 to 1 odds to win the World Series.

    lmao, give me a break their starting staff is a wreck. If Cain AND Peavy come back to top form, then MAYBE they are a contender.

    A four percent 1 day spike and the OP has a woody for the Giants.
    Oh, and who can forget, in March OP thought the Cubs were the 1927 Yankees and Bryant was going to hit like, what? 93 homeruns or something?

    SF's success story so far this year is Brandon Crawford has arrived, I saw it coming a year and a half ago, he has the talent, always had it, just needed some seasoning.

    Now Duffy is coming on, you have Panik too.

    The kids in the infield are stepping up.

    Panda? Never heard of him, good ridinance, don't need Pablo.

    Bear is a disease. As soon as he posted, the Rockies started hitting HR that game at the end. Then the Giants go and lose the next 2 games.

    best all around team is either the nats or dodgers. They both have a lineup that can mash key word is can. And starting pitchers and pretty decent bullpens

    ...up until the point Kershaw gives up another 7 runs to the Cards and Nats bats dissapear again.

    Nobody would have thought this point last year Giants would be playing Royals in WS.

    Talking about October baseball in May is pointless...

    The Giants are hard to read, they were basically the worst team in baseball for 6 weeks last year and won the World Series. Who knows WTF they are gonna do?
