The first month of the MLB season is already in the books, and a new one is upon us. It’s been a roller coaster ride for the San Francisco Giants, full of peaks and screaming valleys.

A team stacked with unparalleled pitching had some rocky moments in the season’s first 22 games; meanwhile, the worst offense in 2011 got off to a relatively hot start in 2012, finishing April ranked seventh in the National League in average runs scored per game.

There were several important storylines for the Giants in April. Some were unfortunate: they lost their closer, Brian Wilson, for the season; their veteran first baseman went on the disabled list with a bout of anxiety; Tim Lincecum’s 5.74 ERA. Some storylines were good: the return of Buster Posey; the reemergence of lefty Madison Bumgarner; Barry Zito’s absolutely shocking 1.67 ERA.

But that’s all behind them. Now, we look ahead at May and some interesting plots for the upcoming month.

Here are seven things that Giants (and baseball) fans should watch for.
