Giants Are Fangraphs' #11 Organization

Don't know about you guys, but this seems low to me. 10th in present talent? The justification for that seems to be that we are pitching-heavy and therefore vulnerable to injury. Well, I'd like to see a couple top players on other teams go down and have them still make the playoffs. There's also some unidirectional thinking, a la "Zito and Rowand are bad deals made out of ignorance but Huff and Torres were just lucky flukes" and "There were a lot of things that went right for SF last year, and pretty much nothing that went wrong". Cameron points out that the Giants led baseball in WAR last year and says that doesn't mean much. This really doesn't make sense to me, so if someone could explain why the Rockies have a better team despite finishing nine games out of first last year and both teams bringing back mostly the same players, and, well, everything else, I'd appreciate it.
