A few stats to contemplate while waiting for some deals to go down on the second day of the Winter Meetings, courtesy Media News’ Andrew Baggarly.
— The Giants’ .387 slugging percentage was dead last in the major leagues in 2007. Imagine if Barry Bonds hadn’t been in the lineup.
— Speaking of Bonds, he led the Giants with 28 home runs last season. The Giants got a whopping 26 home runs from the rest of their outfield. Ouch.
— The Giants were a whopping 26-44 against their National League West foes last season. No other team in the majors had a worse record against teams in its own division. Shows just large a gap general manager Brian Sabean must close to move up even a couple of rungs.
