The 2010 world champion San Francisco Giants hit 162 home runs. That was good for 15th in the major leagues.
The 2011 Giants have hit 22 in their first 18 games. At this rate, they will hit 198 homers this year, which, if they had hit that many last year, would have placed them at the top in the National League and fourth overall in the majors.
Wait a minute. Isn't this the same team we were calling offensively-anemic at this time last year?
Well, yes and no ...
