The Giants came into the post-season with arguably the weakest lineup. Yet, they out-hit their opponents on the way to a World Championship. This surprised many experts, as well as many Giants fans. But there's a very simple reason they out hit their opponents. It's one of those things in life that is so blatantly obvious that everybody completely misses it. I missed it. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks.
They out-hit their opponents because they're the one lineup that never had to face the Giants pitching staff.
