San Francisco Giants: Why Things Will Only Get Better from Here for SF

The defending world champion San Francisco Giants have played 35 games so far in 2011, and the stats, especially offensively, don't look good.

The Giants are hitting .234 as a team (24th out of 30 major league teams).  Their on-base percentage is .301 (26th in the majors).  Their slugging percentage? A dismal .361 (24th in the majors).  And they've scored just 121 runs, placing them higher than only the Padres and Twins in that department.

Without having seen the Giants' win-loss record thus far, and only having those numbers to go by, a Giants fan would cringe at the thought of taking a peek at the standings.

It's okay, Giants fan, you can open your eyes: the Giants are 19-16, a half-game behind the Rockies in the NL West.

How did they pull that off?  And what does this mean for the rest of the season?  If you're a Giants fan, there's a lot to be optimistic about.
