Are the SF Giants being overlooked in this week's power rankings?
Through the first two series of the season, it appeared that the Giants lineup was going to be inconsistent throughout the year, but after heating up in Cleveland, this lineup looks every bit as good as 2021.
Sure, Joey Bart will never truly replace Buster Posey, and it will be hard for the team to replicate the clutch, exciting lineup we saw in 2021, but if 2022 has showed us anything so far, it’s that anyone in this lineup can produce.
It’s not star studded to the point of the Dodgers or the Blue Jays, but everyone is contributing, especially the unproven guys like Joey Bart (.273, 2 HR & 4 RBI) and Thairo Estrada (.242, 2 HR & 8 RBI).
The Giants definitely won’t mind being undervalued and overlooked, as Brandon Belt and Crawford have won several rings being a part of teams that have gone through just this, but it’s hard to see MLB’s logic behind this one, especially behind the Yankees who have struggled mightily to score so far in 2022.
