Uncustomed Heroes of 2016: Giants
So yeah, regardless of anything the Giants did in 2016, if they didn't win the World Series, it was going to be a letdown. They didn't. It was.
Look, there was a lot of talent on this team, and the pitching staff of Bumgarner-Cueto-Shark-Moore-Peavy was one that was insanely powerful, even going into October, but the presence of the Dodgers in that division, and the Cubs in the playoffs, made it impossible for anything to happen past the NLDS.
Still, this was very far from a bad squad. Even if Eduardo Nunez didn't IMMEDIATELY start doing the stuff that made him an All Star in Minneapolis, he was a nice inclusion, and a potential option at third base for next season.
Coming Tomorrow- The Indians squad that ALMOST won the World Series.
