              Wasn't the '62 team to be honored today before the game? If so, I'd be curious to see how many players showed up. Counting manager Al Dark, I think there's still 16 or 17 guys from that team that are still alive.

                I never really gave those Giants teams of the 60's much thought but they really did have a great core of players. I was always a little surprised they didnt win a few more pennants during those years.

                The Dodgers were good but I never really think of those teams as a alltime great team. If the Giants had won I probaly woulda thought of them as a alltime great team.

                I gotta say though this year the Giants look tough with those pitchers they got. I still like the Phillies staff better but it wouldnt surprise me if the Giant pitchers end up with better years than the Phillies 3.

                I like that Bumgarner alot.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

                  From 1965-69 the Giants finished in second place five seasons in a row. That must have been a frustrating time for Giants fans.

                  1965- finished 2.0 GB, blowing a 4 game lead with 12 to play ( I think RoyHobbs is still pissed about this! )
                  1966- finished 1.5 GB, started September tied for first
                  1967- finished 10.5 GB, the Cards ran away with the NL pennant
                  1968- finished 9.0 GB, another runaway pennant for the Cards
                  1969- finished 3.0 GB, Giants were in first as late as September 22 with 8 to play but limped home 3-5.

                    1966 bothers me a lot. Had they managed to catch the Bums I think the Giants do FAR better against the Orioles that LA did. Bums got shutout the last three games of that series, and there is no way the Giants with their hitting are getting shutout like that.

                    BTW, did you see McCovey run like the wind on that triple he got in game 7 of the '62 series? Stretch could really run in his early years!

                      From 1958 to 1971 the Giants had the best overall record in the NL.

                        Frustrating to say the least, what that team may have done in the postseason had the division or wild card formats existed. The Dodger speed and arms combo was just nails '59 to '66.

                            i sure wish that 1993 could be included in your list, wags.
                            that final sunday of the season was disastrous.

                            if only the fledgling rockies had beaten the braves even once outta the 13 that they played that stinkin' season!
