Another torturous weekend of fake fighting. How many hours of wrestling can you possibly endure where there is not even one storyline, with the exception of the Vince McMahon/”Stone Cold” Steve Austin reboot from some 20 years ago. At some point there has to be stories and there has to be characters . . . […]

DENVER — Two weeks ago, the Giants had no business looking at the National League Wild Card standings. With two weeks until the July 31 trade deadline, the Giants’ front office now has every reason to evaluate where the team stands in a playoff race that’s beginning to take shape. After winning 11 of their last 13 games, the Giants have hopped over four teams in the Wild Card race, gained four games in the standings and suddenly emerged as one of the most complete teams in the NL. What will it take for the Giants to keep this hot streak going and become a legitimate playoff contender over the next two months? The obvious answer is more of the same. The Giants have scored the most runs, hit the most home runs and posted the highest batting average of any team in the month of July. The pitching staff owns a 3.61 ERA in its last 12 games and has racked up the fifth most strikeouts in the league during that span. Do the Giants have a better chance of sustaining their strong pitching or elite offense? [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”] “I’d like to see both of them, but to score that many runs, that’s going to be hard to keep doing,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “With that said, it’s being more consistent than we were in the first half offensively.” You might not be able to expect the Giants to score in the double digits three times a week for the rest of the season, but this isn’t the same offense that posted a .219 batting average in April and a .227 mark in May. How unrealistic is it to expect this hot streak at the plate to continue? The Giants have already scored 96 runs this month, their most in a 12-game stretch since the franchise moved to San Francisco in 1958. “That’s hard to keep up, I don’t know what team could keep up with that,” Bochy said. Even if the Giants’ offense regresses, fans should be encouraged by the performances of veterans who have a better chance of maintaining their success. Shortstop Brandon Crawford has raised his average 17 points and raised his OPS 72 points since July 1. With five multi-hit games in his last eight starts, catcher Buster Posey has assumed the team lead in average at .263 and given his OPS a 23-point bump. Both veterans are still hitting well below their career averages, so it’s not out of the question to expect Crawford and Posey’s numbers to continue climbing. The stunning numbers left fielder Alex Dickerson has posted (.400 average, 1.254) aren’t sustainable, but the Giants are confident in his ability to hit for both average and power as long as he stays healthy. The Giants also have reason to be optimistic if they can receive more contributions from either first baseman Brandon Belt or second baseman Joe Panik. Belt is enjoying his best month from an on-base perspective, but he has hardly hit for any power in July. Panik has lost some playing time to utility player Donovan Solano up the middle and must improve on a .525 OPS he’s posted over his last 11 games. On the pitching side, a slew of trades may lead to the downfall of the team’s bullpen, but as long as the unit remains intact, the quartet of Will Smith, Sam Dyson, Tony Watson and Reyes Moronta are as fearsome of a foursome as any in baseball. Having their starting staff replicate its recent success could wind up being the greatest challenge for a Giants club that owns the seventh-best ERA (4.00) since June 1. Rookies Shaun Anderson and Tyler Beede have combined for eight quality starts since May 30, but both are on track to surpass their previous career-highs in innings for a season. Right-hander Jeff Samardzija has quietly positioned himself as an early Pitcher of the Month candidate with three quality starts and a 1.66 ERA in July, but in a sports where baseballs are flying out of stadiums at a record rate, Samardzija must limit the amount of home runs he surrenders. Ace Madison Bumgarner has been solid, but if the Giants don’t win enough games over the next two weeks, it is likely he’ll find himself pitching for a different club after August 1. Losing Bumgarner may not completely crush the Giants’ chances of securing a Wild Card berth, but it would make the task much more difficult. With four teams with visions of contending standing between the Giants and the second Wild Card spot, it’s hard to gauge how realistic San Francisco’s chances are of making a successful postseason push. Much will depend on what transpires at the trade deadline and who the Giants add and subtract, but it could be difficult for president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi to make significant changes to the roster. Stability has bred success as the Giants’ 24-15 record since June 1 is tied for the third-best mark in the NL. Nineteen of the 25 players on the active roster have been with the Giants during that whole time span, while the players who have joined the ride like Dickerson and Austin Slater have made contributions that have only taken the club to greater heights.
