#4: Pedro Feliz (2000-2007)

WAR: 6.2

Growing up going to Giants games, Pedro Feliz was one of my favorite players. He was so consistent and did his job very, very well. Feliz was very sound defensively, and paired very nicely with defensive god Omar Vizquel at short. While the Giants were not great during his tenure, Feliz was a nice piece on a team that consisted of Barry Bonds, Rich Aurilla, JT Snow, Omar Vizquel, Marquis Grissom, Ray Durham, Moises Alou and Randy Winn.

Feliz does not have much to show for his fine Giants career, because he sort of flew under the radar as far as third-basemen go. The level of consistency he maintained the few years he played, fit well in a lineup that was sort of just alright. From 2003-2007, Feliz averaged 20 HR’s and 76 RBI’s a year during that stretch.

Stats with the Giants:

AVG: .252 H: 716 HR: 109 RBI’S: 418 OBP: .288
