The Giants hit into a lot of double plays

I’m not sure what’s the most surprising thing about this article:

1. That the Giants are on pace to hit into 209 double plays, which would beat the current record by a country mile;

2. That the Giants’ offense has actually produced enough base runners to hit into that many double plays; or

3. That the current record — 174 — was set by a team that was actually pretty good: the 1990 Red Sox.

What does not surprise me is that Pablo Sandoval leads the team with eight Gidps. Dude ain’t fast.
