Giants: Castoffs, Misfits and World Series Champions

My husband is a major Giants baseball fan. He has had season tickets for years.. ever since the new San Francisco stadium opened. During this post-season, he is having a time of his life as the team makes the game truly exciting. The sports page describe there tension filled games as "torture." The Giants weren't suppose to make the playoffs or the World Series. Many of the top players were recently pick-up in trades or brought up from the minors and are not that well known. Here is a quick look at some of the Giants' players.

This "baseball" thing, that's the one with the white ball and the bat and such?

GO GIANTS! I admit to being a fair-weather, bandwagon fan, but hey, when the hometown team makes it to the playoffs then the World Series, it's hard not to catch the fever.
