However, the San Francisco Giants have surprised all of baseball With their high level and entering the last month of the regular season, they are the best team in the Major Leagues.
The Dodgers had quite a hectic trade end date, acquiring multi-time Cy Young champion Max Scherzer and young infielder Trea Turner from the Washington Nationals, while the Giants had acquired Kris Bryant from the Chicago Cubs, with those from San Francisco leading the division by 3 games as of July 30.
Since then, both teams have not slowed down and despite the fact that the Dodgers have had a winning streak of more than 10 games at some point and despite their additions, a month after acquiring Scherzer and Turner, Los Angeles have only been able to win half a game in the division race, with the Giants leading by 2.5 games with an 84-46 record.
