4 Reasons the San Francisco Giants Will Be Tough to Beat in 2013

There's no reason why the 2013 version of the Giants can't be better than the 2012 one.

One can probably count on one hand how many "experts" will pick the San Francisco Giants to win the 2013 World Series, but its hard to argue against them being favorites. 

It isn't that other teams aren't better because there are deeper, more balanced teams like the Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves to name a few.

But it's the combination of many things that make the Giants the team toughest to beat in 2013, especially the playoffs.

Sure, they still have offseason needs to take care of like Brian Wilson, Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan, but they aren't going to be sole reasons the Giants struggle (if they do). 

There is no such thing as magic in baseball, but in two of the past three seasons the Giants have made every correct acquisition and personnel decision on their way to winning the World Series. 

Hell, if Buster Posey hadn't suffered that horrible injury, we might be talking about the three-peat champions. Not unfeasible considering just how great the pitching staff was in 2011. 

No more reminiscing, back to the Giants and 2013. 

Let's see how good they can actually be.
