1. The San Francisco Giants this year face tough competition in their division. Namely, the Arizona Diamondbacks, with new additions to their pitching staff, and the Los Angeles Dodgers, with a payroll that continues to crank out big-name players. That being said, the Giants are predicted to win the National League Championship Series this year and have definitely shown that with their new high power additions: Samardzija, Cueto, Span, and other minor league players. However, preseason obstacles already make things look a little bleak. What do you think their performance in spring training will show about the regular season and do you think they will meet expectations? Keep in mind that even though this is a even year, the Giants in past years have won the World Series with very poor early predictions.
