San Francisco Giants fans are a pretty relaxed bunch.
We don't hate our crosstown rivals, or really any of our rivals except the Los Angeles Dodgers, but even that hatred was inherited from the New York days. While this could be an annual list for the New York Yankees faithful, it's taken 43 years to accumulate enough goats worthy of a top 10 list in San Francisco.
This is a fan base that dealt with the cognitive dissonance that is Barry Bonds for 15 years. A man who required his own barca-lounger, disrespected his teammates, verbally assaulted the media, pumped synthetic home run juice into his blood, lied under oath, and may very well be in jail by the time you read this.
But those splash landings were awesome weren't they?
Bonds is probably one of the top five most beloved Giants of all time. Go figure.
However, there are others whose crimes were unforgivable. Some of them accumulated ill will over many years. Others cemented their legacy with one soul-crushing mistake. This is not a list of the worst Giants ever. You won't find Todd Linden, Glenallen HIll or William Van Landingham. Those types merely amuse.
No, these are the guy who crossed us. The overpaid, the under-performing, and those who flat out choked. And forgiveness is slow to come. Here are the top 10 ranked in order of their atrocities.
