Awful August


The San Francisco Giants have won only a single series and are 10-18 in the month of August. The Giants’ offense has dropped to the bottom of the Majors with only 456 Runs Scored as their three July pick ups of Jeff Keppinger, Orlando Cabrera and Carlos Beltran, have been less than stellar at the plate. The batting averages of all three acquisitions have plummeted since donning a black and orange cap, as Keppinger is batting .285, Cabrera is batting .227 and Beltran is batting .270 compared to batting .307, .244, and .289, respectively for their former teams. Compare the numbers of the three new Giants with San Francisco’s “best” bat, Pabalo Sandoval, for the month of August.

RBIs (Blue), Runs Scored (Orange) & Strikeouts (Green)

What’s worse is that these three hitters who were herald as the saviors of the Giants’ offense have only scored 13 out of the 74 Runs Scored in August for an dismal 17%. With heinous hitters, a struggling starting rotation, and a battered bullpen do the Giants have any hope of wining the pennant?
