The San Francisco Giants have leaned heavily on strong starting pitching in the last 10 years. Who are the best of the best since 2010?

In the past decade, the San Francisco Giants have taken home three World Series titles and stellar starting pitching was the driving force behind each those playoff runs.

Things have fallen off a bit since the team’s last World Series win in 2014, but as the decade winds to a close, now is the perfect time to look back on the best of the best over the past 10 years.

That’s especially true here in what could be the final season that Madison Bumgarner spends in a Giants uniform. Can he put together one more magical October this decade?

Ahead is my personal take on the five best starting pitchers who have donned a San Francisco Giants uniform since 2010.
