After a disappointing 2011 season where the San Francisco Giants failed to make the postseason, they will look to respond in 2012 with hopes of regaining the championship title that they secured only a year ago.
The Giants scored the least amount of runs in the National League with 570 and were 161 runs behind the NL West division champion Arizona Diamondbacks. On the bright side, they allowed the second-least amount of runs with 578, begging the question of how good could the Giants be if they could actually score runs.
Although Buster Posey and Freddy Sanchez will hopefully return from injury, that won't be enough offense to skyrocket the Giants into an upper-echelon team. However, adding a player like Albert Pujols just might do that.
