Giants Ten reasons why Giants won the West

Quote:
Matt Cain spared nothing in describing the Giants' division-winning performance. "Every bit of this season was amazing," he said.

This came from a man who pitched the only perfect game in franchise history in June. But Cain was right. Numerous teammates joined him in sustaining the Giants' excellence this year.

Maybe they made headlines, like Buster Posey. Maybe they provided reinforcement, like Marco Scutaro or Hunter Pence. Maybe they didn't even play, like manager Bruce Bochy. But together, they brought San Francisco its eighth National League West title since divisional play began in 1969. Together, they erased a sizable early-season deficit in the standings (7 1/2 games behind Los Angeles on May 27) and weathered crisis (left fielder Melky Cabrera's 50-game suspension for testing positive for testosterone on Aug. 15).

He forgot one major thing, and that is the 1-2 punch of Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro. Scutaro is a baus, but if it wasn't for Pagan batting before him, the Giants wouldn't have a chance in hell at winning the west. As you can that goes into affect this series against the Reds, where Pagan and Scutaro weren't doing ANYTHING, nope, nada <---- (Reminds me of someone, XD)

But now that they are doing something, with Pagan homering and doubling today and Scutaro w/ a sac bunt, a bass knock, and a sac fly.. the Giants are looking like their old selves.
