Today’s BP is brought to you SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in San Francisco Giants fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

It seems likely that some MLB fans still harbor feelings of ill will towards the Giants for winning three titles in five years a while back. But most fans seem over it, and instead are just enjoying this team of lovable dinger-mashers who have bucked any and all preseason expectations.

A recent SB Nation Reacts study of MLB fans showed that the Giants were the second-most common pick for who people would like to win the World Series.

But fans don’t just want the Giants to win; they expect them to. The survey, which was conducted before the start of the NLDS, showed that the majority of polled fans expected the Giants to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers and advance to the NLCS.

Sounds good to me.

While I have you hear, we’ve got a new shirt, courtesy of our friends at BreakingT, to commemorate Logan Webb’s unspeakably fantastic postseason debut on Friday night.

You can buy it here.

Have a wonderful Sunday, friends.
