None of those plays were considered good enough to be on the MLB Network Top 100 Plays of 2016 list. There were many other Brandon Crawford plays in particular that were not even showcased on this top 10 list. There were also some great plays this season from Denard Span and Angel Pagan in the outfield as well as Brandon Belt at first base. However, when making a top 10 list, you are forced to leave off some fantastic plays.
The only three plays the San Francisco Giants did get into the MLB Network top 100 were in fact three of the most impressive plays of the season. Here they are in all their glory.
