San Francisco Giants Franchise History:
The New York Giants joined the National League in 1883 and moved to San Francisco in 1969. The Giants are the most successful franchise in the history of the National League having won seven World Series Titles and twenty-two National League Pennants. The Giants won the World Championship five times while based in New York and added a further two titles since moving to San Francisco. The New York Giants won the National League Pennant an amazing seventeen times and have added five pennants since moving to San Francisco. Amazingly the longest pennant drought for the franchise is only twenty-seven years (from 1962 to 1989), their longest playoffs drought sixteen years (1971 to 1987) and they are the only National League Franchise to win a pennant in three different centuries (1800s, 1900s, 2000s). In recent seasons the San Francisco Giants have developed a strong roster and have won two of the last three World Championships. The Giants head into the 2013 MLB schedule as the reigning World Series Champions.
San Francisco Giants Offensive Star: Buster Posey
Buster Posey was selected with the fifth overall pick of the 2008 MLB draft by the San Francisco Giants. After less than a season in the minor leagues Posey was called up to the majors and was named in their starting team for the 2010 season. Posey had a tremendous rookie year, finishing with a .308 batting average, and was named National League Rookie of the Year. The catcher played a key role in the Giants World Series triumph starting in all four games of the series. In 2011 Posey was involved in a collision which resulted in him requiring season ending surgery on his leg. Posey returned in 2012 and led the Giants to their second World Series triumph in three years. Posey’s was named National League MVP, National League Comeback Player of the Year and received the Hank Aaron Award after finishing the season as the MLB batting champion. Posey is, without a doubt, the best catcher in MLB and if he maintains his amazing record will be in the conversation for the greatest of all time.
San Francisco Giants Defensive Star: Matt Cain
Matt Cain was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the first round of the 2002 MLB draft. Cain was called up the majors in 2005 and at the time was the second youngest pitcher in MLB. Cain had an excellent finish to his rookie season but was relatively inconsistent in 2007 and 2008 although he received little support from his offense. Cain improved significantly in 2009 and was rewarded with selection for the MLB All-Star game. In 2010, he played a key role in the Giants World Series triumph and was the team’s leading pitcher in the post-season. Cain became the Giants undisputed number one pitcher in 2012 and had another stellar season highlighted by his perfect game against the Houston Astros – the first in Giants franchise history.
San Francisco Giants Manager: Bruce Bochy
Bruce Bochy began his managerial career with the San Diego Padres in 1995 and remained at the franchise for eleven years. Bochy ended his tenure at the Padres as the most successful manager in franchise history having led the side to just their second National League Pennant in 1998. Bochy joined the Giants in 2007 and after a slow start led the Giants to the 2010 World Championship before adding another title just two seasons later. The fifty-seven-year-old is one of the leading managers in Major League Baseball and will be hoping to add further World Series triumphs to his record over the coming years.
