Ten good reasons why Giants fans need to stay optimistic in 2011

Things look sort of bleak right now for the San Francisco Giants.

Buster Posey is done for the year. Freddy Sanchez and Mark DeRosa may very well be done for  the year. Both are hoping to avoid season-ending surgery. Aubrey Huff is struggling to regain his 2010 form. The Giants are near the bottom of the NL in offense. They have been outscored by their opponents this year.

Those are all good reasons for Giants fans to lose hope, starting thinking about 2012.
