Every year, I have set up a 64 player bracket to see which players San Francisco Giants fans consider the best in team history.

I have limited the choices to players who have played for the San Francisco Giants since they moved to California in 1958. Using Baseball Reference to determine value and seeding is a huge part of the brackets as well. Wins Above Replacement is one of the main stats used to decide the seeding.

Over the next two weeks, we will be revealing the remaining brackets for Giants fans. Voting will take place on Twitter. Go to my Twitter account at @CandlestickWill for the official brackets. We will include links to each bracket in future articles as well.

As we reveal the next four seeds, let the debating begin as to who is ranked too high, who is ranked too low and who is missing entirely. Please let us know if there are Giants players that deserve to be a part of this game that we have not included.

So without further delay, here are the 8 seeds:
