New Giant Caught Almost Cheating
People are starting to predict the NL West division winner. So far BA sees the Padres coming in first and BP sees the Dodgers being the most probable winner. I don't see how any of them can say this. Both the Dodgers and Padres made at best sideway moves - the Giants improved themselves overall. They were all close to each other in 2004 so this should mean the Giants should win.
Yes, there will be declines from some of the vets. But I think overall the Giants have improved themselves. I will go over the Giants changes in a future post in detail but I don't see how these pundits can say this, other than I feel that there is a bias against the Giants at BP - I can't put my finger on it but that is my impression overall from reading their past books and past articles, in particular their Triple Play columns.
