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. This led to the best record in baseball for a while.
Then, injuries started to hit. The Giants were able to get through Brandon Belt’s injury at first, but then their offense stalled. Angel Pagan went down. Marco Scutaro was still absent. Matt Cain had a couple trips to the DL. The offense was missing, and wins were hard to find.
