Crowley: After latest hiccup, SF Giants bullpen still looks a hand away from greatness

LOS ANGELES – Since the end of spring training when the Giants dropped a group of relief pitchers with major league experience from their opening day roster, the club has been chasing greatness in the bullpen.

Twenty-three pitchers have appeared as a relief for the Giants this season, and when the second half began on Friday in St. Louis, it looked as if Gabe Kapler had the club’s best possible bullpen combination available. And when five giant relievers combined to throw six innings of a hit ball in a 7-2 win at Dodger Stadium on Monday, it served as confirmation that the front office gathered a bullpen. Which could rival any major companies.

The numbers definitely suggest that the Giants’ bullpen is elite.

In addition to posting a fourth-place 3.38 bullpen ERA in the major leagues this season, the Giants have a 2.64 bullpen ERA as of June 1, the best mark of any major league club since that date. In the past seven weeks, his 2.16 walks per nine innings is the lowest of any bullpen and 0.66 home runs per nine innings the Giants reliever has surrendered and leads all major league clubs.

Most playoff contenders would have the type of bullpen the Giants have had for the past two months, but after an 8-6 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday in which the club took a 6-1 fifth-innings lead, fans understand Troubled by the situation in the Giant’s Relief Corps.
