Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

All Time San Francisco Giants Roster - Career Value/Top 20 San Francisco Giants of All Time







This is the last of the series, you can get to the rest of them here. 

This is career value by San Francisco Giants (so Mays before '58 and Bonds before '93 doesn't count).

WARP is first, WAR is second.  Here's the All Time San Francisco Giants 25 man roster.

C Tom Haller 19, 18.8
    Bob Brenly 19.6, 18.1

1B Willie McCovey 66.2, 60.6
      Will Clark 47.9, 37.5

2B Jeff Kent 41.6, 32.9
     Robby Thompson 34.4, 31

SS Chris Speier 30.9, 18.1
     Rich Aurilia 25.3, 15.5

3B Matt Williams 41.5, 31.7
     Jim Ray Hart 22.8, 24.4

Uti Darrell Evans 25.3, 21.5
     Kevin Mitchell 26.1, 19.4

LF Barry Bonds 129.6, 121.6
     Orlando Cepeda 35.1, 28.9

CF Willie Mays 108.6, 115.4

RF Bobby Bonds 38.3, 36.9
      Jack Clark 27.8, 30.7

P Juan Marichal 63.4, 64.7
   Gaylord Perry 36.5, 41.2
   Jim Barr 31.1, 28.1
   Gary Lavelle 28.8, 18.5
   Matt Cain 31.9, 24.6
   Tim Lincecum 29.4, 22.5
   Jason Schmidt 17.7, 19.5
   Mike McCormick 17.5, 16.7

(That's an 8 man staff, I took Mitch and Evans as extra position players as opposed to two more pitchers - if you were looking to round out a top ten SFG pitchers of all time, they would be Minton and Nen).
