The San Francisco Giants Look To Rebound In The NL West
The news has been all bad for the San Francisco Giants, whether it’s on the field, off the field or at the betting window. The Giants have lost 13 of their first 19 games and bring up the rear in the National League’s Western Division.
Anyone that’s bet on them in each game has lost (-$811), marking San Francisco the biggest money-burner in the National League and second in all of baseball to Toronto. That’s not the NL pennant anyone in San Francisco had in mind.
Off the field came the crowning blow—Madison Bumgarner was injured in a dirt bike accident and will be out for up to two months. As the Giants begin a four-game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers, it’s time to ask—is this going to be a lost season in San Francisco?
It would be easy to jump to that conclusion and the fact San Francisco is now 5-1 simply to win the NL West suggests many already have. This is a division that was seen as a two-team race between the Giants and Dodgers at the start of the year, but only Arizona and Colorado have really distinguished themselves in the first three weeks. If you think the Giants are being written off too quickly, this certainly provides opportunity to buy a stock at the right price—if, that is, there is any chance of that stock having value by October.
