2016 SF Giants: 4 in 7 World Series Champions?

Giants miss the post-season playoffs in 2011, 2013, and 2015
2015 was the third straight time a San Francisco Giants baseball team followed winning the World Series Championship with a season that did not even put them in the playoffs. This may be a good opportunity to mention that currently there is an even-year run of World Series Championships by a Giants team that includes winning the title in 2010, 2012, and 2014. In 2016, manager Bruce Botchy may see an extention of those consecutive even-year title wins.

Regarding a possible next even-year championship:
(Excerpt:) "... the Giants [in 2016] are looking to once again rely on their tried and true formula of strong pitching and defense and a lineup filled with contact hitters who can pressure the opposing staff... 'Across the infield and outfield, this is as set as we've been and as good a defensive club as I've ever had.'"

Walt Disney World sets up a December 5, 2015 event:
Hunter (All-Star) Pence proposes to (now) Fiancee Lexi Cozombolidis
Source (1:45 video):

Hunter and Lexi are optimisitic about their future together. The San Francisco Giants are optimistic about next season -- of course, many can be optimistic at this time in a baseball year.

Perhaps prophetically for the Giants, it takes 4 wins in 7 possible games to win a World Series Championship.
