For Giants, failure to act could be the gravest error in a season full of them

If there has been one overused theme so far this season, it's that 2017 is a summer of great parity in Major League Baseball. Or at least, that is the sunny side up, glass half full version angle, because it has been a season where drastic cases of inconsistency and flat-out missed expectations have forced parity to the plate.
