DENVER -- - The Giants made history last year when winning the World Series. If they don't improve in the standings, they'll make history again for all the wrong reasons. They could become just the second team since the World Series was created to follow a championship with a last-place finish. The only team to finish last a year after winning a World Series was the 1998 Marlins, and those shameful Marlins didn't even try, instead engaging in a legendary fire sale and losing 108 games after winning it all in 1997. The Giants have 30 games to pull themselves from the cellar.
