Remember when the Giants are 12-8 after three weeks? Remember that the Giants did that despite Buster Posey hitting his stride?Remember how we thought the offense would really take off once Buster found his groove?

Well, Buster found it last week, hitting .429 (9 for 21) with two home runs, 6 RBI, three walks, just one strikeout. He had .500 OBP and a 1.310 OPS.

Pretty good huh? So what did the Giants do last week? They went 1-5.

This further proves that baseball is a team game, and the Giants need production up and down the lineup to succeed.

Last week’s player of the week — Brandon Crawford — hit .217 last week. Week 2’s POY, Marco Scutaro, hit .185.

We hope this isn’t a trend because we need Buster to stay hot.

Oh, and the Giants’ second best hitter last week? Any guesses? How about Brandon Belt (.389 avg, .476 OBP, 1.087 OPS).
