The San Francisco Giants have arguably the best starting rotation in franchise history. Rotation spots 2-5 have dominated the competition, and if their ace Tim Lincecum could adapt and figure things out, they probably would have the best record in baseball for the year.
However, the Giants have had some legendary talent in their time. Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner could earn their way onto the list, but their careers are far from over. Tim Lincecum could still be on this list.
To give you a little bit more about the history, the San Francisco Giants started as the New York Gothams in 1883 and evolved into the New York Giants in 1885. The team became the San Francisco Giants in 1958 when they moved west.
I am giving you the best starting rotation in Giants history, based on their time with the Giants. One or two year stops with the Giants will not be included on the list.
Here we go.
