The San Francisco Giants had an amazing first half of the season. Going into the All-Star game, the Giants had a 57-33 record, three games ahead of anyone else in the MLB. Giants’ pitchers Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto were even in the race for the NL CY Young award.
Since that week, the Giants have been a lackluster team (15-29 since the break), not a team contending for the World Series title. If the Giants can’t turn this second half of the season around, they might be the first team in MLB History to have the best winning percentage in the first half of the season and worst winning percentage in the second half of the season.
It’s tough for the Giants to figure out what the problem is with the team. The Giants are still holding onto the top Wild Card spot, sitting at 72-62,but it would be amazing if they are able to keep up with the rest of the league at this pace.
The final part of the season will be difficult for not only the team, but for the fans and coaching staff of the Giants as well. As we watch the remaining games of the season, it leaves us wondering if this is finally the end of the San Francisco Giants’ dynasty.
