As a longtime Dodger fan, it pains me to mention our archrival Giants in a sentence without deriding them.
But, as the season has come to a teeth-grinding halt for the Boys in Blue, the Giants are making a run for the lead in the NL West and will soon overtake the Padres and end up winning the division.

But, let me ask you this question as you peruse the standings and stand by your favorite team (Yankees, Rangers, Phillies, Padres, Rockies, Cards and Reds): Would you want to face the Giants in a short series?
Here are 10 good reasons to hope the Giants don't come to your town during the post-season.
