The San Francisco Giants were founded in 1883. They have won more games than any team in Major League baseball history. This is part of our series of All-Time lists, looking at the greatest right-handed pitchers in team history.
The San Francisco Giants have had some amazing pitchers over the last 130 years. Thanks to Baseball Reference, we have the ability to compare pitchers from different eras and from different centuries. We will be able to compare Giants from both New York and San Francisco, dating back to the beginning of our national pastime.
Included on the list are a collection of both Hall of Famers as well as pitchers who are not in Cooperstown, but left an imprint in Giants history.
Two recent Giants, Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum have become two of the greatest pitchers in San Francisco history, but only Cain has been able to crack the top 10. This says more about the great talent on the mound in New York and San Francisco over the years than anything against Lincecum.
I would imagine some fans would be angry to think that Cain is ranked higher than Lincecum, but the numbers don’t lie.
So where does Matt Cain rank on the All-Time list? You’ll have to click to find out.
