2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  88.5 
2016 NL West Odds (Westgate):  6/5

Key Additions:  Denard Span, Johnny Cueto, Jeff, Samardzija

Handicapper’s Take: “The Giants made waves by bringing in Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija this offseason to join Madison Bumgarner in the starting rotation. Even with Bumgarner’s stellar stats, the starting staff ranked 16th in MLB with a 4.06 FIP. Cueto and Samardzija do come in with some baggage. Last season, Cueto saw his ERA jump by over a run and his K-rate drop from 8.94 to 7.47. And there are rumblings that Samardzija’s stuff is starting to deteriorate after four straight years of big innings. The Giants are hoping that the fresh start and move to the NL West will spark a resurgence from both players.  The bullpen still has effective specialist’s Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez and with more innings from the rotation, manager Bruce Bochy should be able to utilize the two more efficiently in the later innings. The Giants offensively are on par with the championship teams of recent past. If Hunter Pence is able to stay healthy this lineup could put up some of the best numbers in the National League. Span, Panik, Posey, Belt, Pence, and Duffy offer one of the better 1-6’s in baseball. And the infield defense projects to be one of the best in the NL with all four starters regarded as above average. San Fran has always been a well run organization and because of that pedigree, expectations are routinely high. This year is no different with 90+ wins a real possibility. On paper, Cueto and Samardzija are walking into the perfect situation to return to their status as upper-tier starters. If that holds true, even the inevitable market respect won’t keep this team from earning profits.”
