No Offense Giants


With players dropping faster than Hewlett-Packer’s stock price, the defending World Series Champions are extremely fortunate to only be two games back of the NL West leading Arizona Diamondbacks.  The Giants’ offense has been non-existent this year as they average only 3.44 Runs per Game, the lowest in all of the Majors!  The Giants were 52-40 at the All-Star Break and went 26-11 in one-run games.  Since, the Giants are 15-21, have gone 3-7 in one-run games and have been outscored by their opponents 139 to 112.  Compare the Giants’ offensive production with the other playoff contenders since the All-Star Break:

Runs Scored (Blue) & Home Runs (Orange)

The 1964 Dodgers had the lowest Runs per Game of any Playoff team ever with a whopping (compared to the 2011 Giants) 3.74. So it will be historic if the Giants are able to defend their championship this October.
