The SF Giants have a history of being overlooked, and even after winning 107 games in 2021, and making great moves in the offseason, the team was still overlooked heading into the 2022 campaign.

Are the SF Giants being overlooked in this week's power rankings?

Despite starting the season 7-2, the team is still being overlooked by the national media, and despite being ranked at No. 7 on the MLB’s official second power ranking of the year, there should be some questions raised.

Ultimately, power rankings in the grand scheme of things won’t effect anything on the field, but it’s another example of the Giants being overlooked and disrespected, as the team has arguably been the best in baseball so far in 2022.

The Rotation

Coming into 2022, the expectation was that the Giants rotation would be elite, but after 9 games so far, it’s even better than many, even dedicated Giants fans could have expected.

Logan Webb and Carlos Rodon look like the best 1-2 punch in baseball, and the team has got two solid starts from Anthony DeSclafani and Alex Wood, with Alex Cobb at No. 5 flashing electric stuff in his lone start of the season so far.

All five starters have been solid, and while there are some great rotations in baseball, none have the potential that the Giants do, and thus far they have produced at an elite clip.

Sure, the Dodgers and the Mets have been equally as dominant, but as far as the Blue Jays, Yankees and the Astros, they just don’t stack up compared to what the Giants are and what they could become this season.
