San Francisco Giants: Problems Still Facing Club in 2012

That is the look of Giants manager Bruce Bochy last season when scoring runs seemed like a foreign concept to the team.

A season ago, the Giants were towards the bottom of every offensive statistic. San Francisco ranked 29th in runs (570), 28th in batting average (.242) and 29th in on-base percentage (.303).

Even with the offensive woes, the Giants had a shot to contend with the Diamondbacks for the division. In the end, however, the San Francisco offense was simply unable to get the job done.  

Brian Sabean and the Giants' front office made a few small moves to bolster the offense by trade. Acquiring Melky Cabrera from the Royals seems like a good move for a player who fits the Giants need.

Angel Pagan was acquired for Andres Torres, a case where similar players both needed a change of location.

Come April, Bochy and company get another opportunity to support the strongest pitching in the NL West.

Here are three giant weaknesses that will prevent the Giants from claiming the division title if they are not addressed.
