That’s a whole lot of fives.

Hope you don’t mind, because this is a special Cinco de Mayo themed San Francisco Giants list. No, there won’t be any mariachi or margaritas—it’s only lunchtime, after all—but we will be celebrating the suddenly-.500 Gigantes, winners of a season-high four-straight and five of their last six!

Didn’t I warn you there’d be more fives on the way?

So, take five from your 9-to-5 as we high-five our boys in orange and black. Ole!
