5 Reasons to Be Optimistic for the San Francisco Giants' 2014 Season
Associated Press
Giants manager Bruce Bochy has a team that should contend in 2014.

The San Francisco Giants are off to a 3-1 start in the 2014 season. The Giants' offense looks more potent than in years past, and although the pitching has been a little shaky at times, there does not appear to be anything to worry about.

Manager Bruce Bochy is missing two players he was counting on. NatsLady of sportsinjuryreport.com reports on reliever Jeremy Affeldt and second baseman Marco Scutaro. Affeldt is due to return in a few days, but the news on Scutaro is not favorable.

Scutaro has made little progress; his return is undetermined. Meanwhile, the Giants will continue to mix and match with Ehire Adrianza, Joaquin Arias and Brandon Hicks filling in.

Already, early in the season, we are seeing some very positive trends, and the 2014 outlook for the Giants is good. Let's take a look at five of the most positive signs thus far.
