The San Francisco Giants’ 2014 season has been an interesting one. They started off the season hot, clicking on all cylinders. Their offense, which has been one of their weaknesses in recent history, was flowing, they were getting clutch hits, they were playing solid defense and executing the fundamentals, and their bullpen was dominant.
