Well, we have reached halfway. The Giants have played 3 wins below their expected win total based on run differential (technically due to chance, I say due to Bochy), are in the midst of a brutal losing jag and road trip, and are in even worse shape than at this point last year.
After 81 games in 2009, the Giants were 44-37 and 7.5 games back of the Dodgers. They are currently 7.5 behind the Pads, but are off their own pace from 2009. The Giants have lost more games this year, even with Zito's resurgence, Huff playing to his ceiling, and Posey being with the team this last month or so.
So what do you guys think happens in the second half of the season? Does Sabean make drastic changes, or does he stand pat because we were in it last year even at 7.5 back with 81 left ? Do we turn around our record in one run games? Do we suddenly start winning on the road? How about in the division? Or is this the team we got?
With half the season gone, how do you think the next 81 games play out?
Same as the first half. 41-40 to finish 82-80 and in 4th place. (37 votes)
Better than the first half. They play around win projection 44-37 the rest of the way and finish at 85-77, but out of the playoffs. (84 votes)
Worse than the first half. They will never be in this thing. (45 votes)
Somehow, some way, the team spites Bork's best efforts and makes the postseason. (39 votes)
