The San Francisco Giants defense was one of the best in baseball in 2016. Catcher Buster Posey, second baseman Joe Panik and shortstop Brandon Crawford each won the Gold Glove as the best defensive player in the National League at their position. Unsung heroes also shown bright, specifically at third base.
MLB Network recently came out with their top 100 plays of 2016, and while three of the San Francisco Giants best defensive plays did make the list, there were no plays from any of the Gold Glovers.
Crawford not being included seems especially egregious. No Panik dive or catch made the list either. Also, nothing Posey did at catcher was deemed worthy.
