MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

For all the rightful attention Pablo Sandoval has received because of his tremendous inning of relief Saturday afternoon, there’s still the small matter of the Giants maintaining relevance in the NL West and their industry as they close out the first month of the season. Without their #1 and #3 starter, despite their #2 starter lost to DL time for a time, their starting left fielder unable to compete and their hot-hitting backup suddenly knocked out with an injury, and a now uncertain future for their prime second baseman, the Giants will end the month around the .500 mark for the first time since 2016.

That means we’ve seen a lot of positive results for a team that’s been mired in bad process for nearly two seasons and it certainly suggests that there’s perhaps been a change in the process. Naturally, we’re on the case discussing everything that happened this past week as well as projecting the week ahead. We also make our picks to click and answer your Twitter questions.
