In what has been a surprising start to the season for the National League West teams, the San Francisco Giants have officially found themselves at the bottom of the division with a 23-35 record.
As of June 4, the Philadelphia Phillies are the only team in the National League with a worse record and Philadelphia just beat the Giants two games out of three over the weekend.
Before the season started, it was known throughout the league that the Giants did not have the best team but did have enough to contend. Madison Bumgarner’s dirt bike incident took the wind out of their sails and lack of production from others have sunk the ship.
Unless anything changes, the Giants will be spending their time alongside teams like the Padres and the Phillies, both of which are clearly in the middle of rebuilding stages.
After their weekend series against the Phillies, it just might be time to write off the Giants for the 2017 season.
The Giants lost 9-7. The Phillies had lost 10 consecutive series before the Giants came to town.
