There's no doubt the pitching staff is the best part of the Giants in 2010. They led the majors with a team ERA of 3.38.
Earlier this year I wrote an article comparing the pitching staff to pop culture figures. My personal favorite was Brian Wilson, whom I compared to Sonny Corleone from the Godfather movies.
But not enough respect is paid to the Giants' offense. From top to bottom, their lineup is a formidable one.
What other playoff team boasts a Juan Uribe or Pablo Sandoval in the eight hole?
Furthermore, in July the offense led the majors in runs scored, and in September they led the league in home runs.
The offense is good enough, in fact, that they had the luxury of leaving off one of the best hitting prospects in the minors, Brandon Belt, from their 40 man roster for September.
So what exactly does a pop culture comparison to the hitters look like?
