  • S.F. Giants HoF-catchers

    Let's vote for the top three at each position. Vote #1 and #2 and #3.

    #1- 3 points
    #2- 2 points
    #3- 1 point

    For a player to qualify they must have played for the Giants at least five years. I'll give a week for this poll.

    The Giants haven't had many great catchers:

    1. Tom Haller
    2. Bob Brenly
    3. Kirk Manwaring

      What's up with Dietz's 1970 season? A 153 OPS+ from a catcher! Is he related to Norm Cash?

          The Giants franchise in its totality hasn't had much in the way of catchers, except Buck Ewing and Roger Bresnahan, who were from so long ago I don't have much faith in their dominance.

            OK Wags, now that was funny!

              I could possibly go with Haller. The best--Chief Meyers, Roger Bresnahan & Shanty Hogan--were all w/ New York. I like Manwaring & Dietz, but Haller is the only one who was steady over a period of time. If I have to give 3:

              Haller
              Dietz
              Manwaring

                Brian Johnson (just for his season for the Giants in 97)
                Manwering
                Brenly

                And Benito had a couple of good seasons for the Giants too.
                You know it!
