The Giants were Champs last year, and this year they stink.
It happens every year, in both directions.
The Sox led the division last year with 8 days to go in the season.
Stranger things have happened.
6th in Pitching--10th in Fielding and 15th in batting. Beckham certainly improves the defense at 2nd but he has played 72 games and has 7 errors himself. Phegley and Garcia are not major improvements defensively over Flowers and Rios. So defensively they need changes in several areas. Offensively, a couple of bats + Garcia will probably not be enough. They need to replace 4 or 5 position starters not 1 or 2.
