Misfits and Castoffs Bring Glory to San Francisco
Manager Bruce Bochy referred to his 2010 Giants as a “bunch of misfits. ” The lineup was loaded with castoffs, such as bounceback-player Aubrey Huff.
The pitching staff was largely homegrown, but it featured such characters as closer Brian “The Beard” Wilson, who dyed his fuzzy monstrosity inky black, and ace Tim “The Freak” Lincecum, whose long, shiny hair would attract derisive hey-good-lookin’ whistles in enemy ballparks.
hile the misfits & castoffs inspired little more than eye rolls and yawns in the season’s first half, they began to captivate their fans. ..
Catcher Buster Posey (. 305) is the NL Rookie of the Year.
Tim Lincecum (16–10, league-best 231 strikeouts) and Brian Wilson (NL-high 48 saves) lead the best staff in baseball (3.26 ERA).
