The Giants are NL West champions. In a season where the Giants were supposed to be toeing the line between rebuilding and retooling, and the Los Angeles Dodgers we’re supposed to be historically good — and give credit where credit is due, they were exactly that — the Giants won the division.

Celebrate and enjoy. The Giants won the West.
