6. Gaylord Perry: WAR (36.9)

Hall of Famer Perry had a marvelous career that was cut short in San Francisco in 1971 when the team traded him. Before the trade, Perry was one of the better pitchers in team history.

From 1962-1971, Perry won 134 games with a 2.96 ERA. He also maintained a 1.152 WHIP with a 2.88 FIP and 119 ERA+. Perry went to two All-Star games as a Giant including 1970. However, after just one more season, Perry was gone. He would go on to pitch until 1983 and win 314 games for his career.

With Perry, it will always be what might have been had the Giants kept the right-hander.

5. Tim Keefe: WAR (37.3)

Keefe pitched for the New York Giants from 1885-1891. He won 174 games in just six seasons for the Giants. He also maintained a 2.54 ERA, 1.101 WHIP, 2.88 FIP and 129 ERA+.

In 1886 alone, he started 64 games and won 42 over 535 innings. The Hall of Famer was inducted into Cooperstown in 1964, winning 342 games over 14 Major League seasons.
