It has not been a great season for the San Francisco Giants, but we’ll take a look at who earned some first half awards on the team.

The Giants are 34-56 going into the All-Star Break. They are in last place in the National League West, 27 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. It’s not much better in the wild card where they are 17.5 games back with the second worst record in all of baseball.

This is certainly not the season many of us expected. It’s certainly not the season San Francisco Giants fans hoped for, but it is what it is.

Even though it’s been a terrible 2017 so far, there are still some Giants worthy of first half awards.

Some of these might be a stretch, especially on the pitching side, because it has been a terrible year. There is no way to sugar coat the San Francisco Giants first half. They have been absolutely terrible with a few bright spots.

I’m hoping when we do these awards at the end of the year it will be a lot easier to find a winner. Or even better, I hope there are more candidates for these awards.

The second half has to be better than the first half, if for no other reason than it can’t get any worse than the first half that the San Francisco Giants had.

Still, we’ll hand out first half awards for the best pitcher, hitter, and rookie on the San Francisco Giants through the first half of the 2017 season.
