In 2010, the Giants were a fourth-place team at the All-Star break, and had completely oberhauled their opening-day lineup during the season, signing players that nobody else wanted. Their ace pitcher got busted for marijuana possession over their winter, their best young hitter endured a terrible year and their MVP contemplated retirement while he sat on the disabled list three times. Does this sounds like a World Series winner to you? Together these screwball Giants accomplished something that so many greats and Hall of Fame Players- Mays, McCovey, Marichal, Will Clark, Bonds- never were able to do: They hoisted the commissioner's trophy in San Francisco, celebrating the city's first World Series Championship 53 years after the Giants pulled up stakes from the Polo Grounds and moved west. This is the story of those characters, how they came together- and how they became legends forever in the city by the bay.
