First-half grades for all 30 MLB teams: Handing out everything from an A-plus to an F-minus ⚾
Heading into 2021, the Giants looked old and mediocre. FanGraphs gave them a 0.2% chance of winning the division and 5.7% to make the playoffs. Now the Giants look like a savvy veteran club that just knows how to win and those playoffs odds are above 90%. Riding big seasons from All-Stars Kevin Gausman, Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford and Gabe Kapler's lineup machinations, they begin the second half with the best record in baseball -- but the Dodgers are breathing down their necks. Note: The Giants have seven games against the Dodgers in their first 13 coming out of the break.
