We might be witnessing the worst San Francisco Giants team to ever take the field.
After their loss to the Rockies on Saturday, the Giants were on pace for 102 losses, which translates to a .317 winning percentage.
The Giants are on pace to lose 102 games. That would be a franchise record, for a franchise that started play in 1883.

That would be the worst winning percentage from any Giants team ever take the field. For a franchise that has been around for way over 100 years, 2017 has been an absolute disaster.
The Madison Bumgarner dirt bike injury was the first string to be plucked, followed by a complete collapse from the entire team.

Since the dirt bike incident, we have seen the rise and fall of their top prospect, Christian Arroyo, who is now back in the minors, Hunter Strickland picking fights with people from three years ago and even two teammates trucking each other in an attempt to get involved in the brawling madness.

The problem that is haunting San Francisco the most is that their 2016 bullpen woes have followed them into 2017. Big money signing Mark Melancon has not come close to what they expected him to be. Most recently giving up a walk-off three-run home run to Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado.
GIants blow two-run lead in ninth. Arenado walk-off homer. Hits for cycle. Blown save for Melancon. One of worst Giants seasons ever.

That boosted up Melancon’s ERA to 5.09 and capped off a sweep for the Rockies over the Giants, who now have a worse record than the Padres and are sporting a .366 winning percentage from 19.5 games behind in the NL West.
