My mother recently cleaned out her basement, and found a bunch of my old baseball books and paraphernalia. One that particularly caught my eye is this book:
Therein you can find THE FUTURE OF THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS!!!! Such as:
Charlie Hayes! (Total WAR as a Giant: 0.4. He did get us one-third of Steve Bedrosian, though)
The one guy who was pretty good for us:
Kirt Manwaring! (Total WAR as a Giant: 9.2; then he was traded for Rick Wilkins)
Trevor Wilson! (4.5 WAR for the Giants - spread across seven seasons, 1988-1995)
There are some other future Giants in here, too. One is a personal favorite of mine:
Mark Carreon! (WAR for the Giants: 3.1; before Aubrey Huff, that was good enough to make him the second best Giants first baseman post-Will Clark)
Darryl Hamilton! (3.8 WAR for the Giants, then got us Ellis Burks)
Damon Berryhill! (who I randomly remember was one of xanthan's favorite backup catchers in an article he once wrote for his spamblog)
And, finally, the piece de resistance:
INEXPLICABLY RIGHT HANDED AND VERY BLUE RANDY JOHNSON!
This is all fairly pointless, though I wish the quality was better so y'all could read the text, but I got a kick out of it and I hope you do too.
