Without a doubt, one of the biggest questions facing the San Francisco Giants in 2012 will be determining who their fifth starter in the rotation will be.
Shortstop, first base and the outfield are also positions in question for the Giants in 2012. But, for a team built around pitching, the fifth starter is very important.
