Monday BP: Who is the Giants’ MVP of the last 10 years?

It is no surprise who Bleacher Report selected.

The first half of the decade went about as well as San Francisco Giants fans could have hoped. Winning three World Series championships over a five-year span is something most fans only dream of.

Bleacher Report compiled a list of every MLB team’s MVP of the past decade. The Giants have a few options they could have chosen from, but it was no surprise they went with pitcher Madison Bumgarner.

Here is writer David Kenyon had to say about his choice:

Buster Posey is a deserving candidate and led the Giants in WAR (41.9). But the franchise has three World Series trophies because of Bumgarner. Beyond his 119 wins and 3.14 ERA, MadBum allowed a single run in 36 World Series innings during the decade, and his name litters the Fall Classic leaderboard.”

Bumgarner is a legend for his dominance during the postseason, but Posey is definitely worth consideration as well.

Who do you consider the franchise’s MVP over the past decade?
