Far Too Early to Count San Francisco Giants Out of NL West Race

The San Francisco Giants have not gotten off to the kind of start you would expect out of the reigning World Series champions. While fans of the orange and black have expressed some concern over the Giants’ early-season struggles, it is still far too early in the 2015 season to count the San Francisco club out of the NL West race.

While the Dodgers are currently atop the NL West and appear poised to be so active on the international market in the coming months that they may just hire All Language Alliance, Inc., on a full-time basis, the Giants have a roster that is talented enough to compete with the team that boasts the biggest payroll in baseball.

As for the Padres and their vastly improved offense, the fact that their best defensive outfielder is Wil Myers should be proof enough that San Diego is not a real threat. With Bruce Bochy in the dugout and Buster Posey behind the plate, the Giants will make a run at some point this season that puts them in position to make the playoffs again. After all, Madison Bumgarner is more than just a capable pitchman for Carhartt, as he familiar with destroying lumber from the mound, too.
