The amount of dynasties in Major League Baseball over the past number of years have been slim to none but the San Francisco Giants are looking like they are building one to mimic the New York Yankees for years to come.
After Sunday night’s win to sweep the Detroit Tigers right out of the 2012 World Series and win their second title in three years, it is obvious that with the pitching that San Francisco possesses that it will be very difficult to beat them over the next few years. Matt Cain is signed through 2018 while Tim Lincecum is signed through next season but you have to figure that the Giants will try to get a new contract for him after his playoff performance. Madison Bumgarner is signed through 2019 while Barry Zito is finally living up to his contract and is signed through 2014 and that is not even mentioning Ryan Vogelsong.
This team has a great base hitting with Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval as well but the other young hitters in the lineup need to continue to get better and bring more power to the starting nine. The National League West has got many years of pain ahead trying to compete with that pitching staff and even with all the additions that the Los Angeles Dodgers have made in the past few months, it was proven in this World Series that great pitching stops great hitting. The National League title is going through San Francisco for many years to come so the other teams in the NL had better stock up on pitching to compete with the Giants.
