Perhaps a blog post will stir some good vibes for the Giants. After last night's extra innings lost to the Mets, we couldn't help but think about the 2011 season and the disappointment the fan base had when the team failed to play in the postseason. As you may recall, the 2011 club finished in 2nd place in the NL West with a record of 86-76, and that's with the absence of Buster Posey. So we thought it be interesting to see how the 2013 club compares to the 2011 club as of today. On July 9, 2011, the team had a 51-40 record. Compared to the club's current record (40-48), the differential in the win column is 11 games.
Is the 2013 a total loss? It's still too early to tell, but there is no doubt the team needs it's full roster healthy and injury-free.
