SF Giants as Star Wars characters
Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford: Chewbacca and Han Solo

We all know that our beloved Brandons are a great comedic duo. In case you needed a reminder, here is a video from a few years ago in which they read dad jokes to each other.

Priceless.

Now, when I think of cool in general, I think of Han Solo. And when I think of cool on the baseball field, I think of Brandon Crawford. His effortless grace at shortstop and poise at the plate, not to mention his luscious locks and stylish footwear, make him one of the coolest Giants in recent memory.

And when I think of creatures that are big lovable fuzzballs, I instantly think of Chewbacca and Brandon Belt. They both have a great sense of humor. Neither of them even has to say a word to make you laugh, all it takes is a look or some sort of guttural noise.

Han and Chewie may be the most iconic duo in a galaxy far far away, but here on Earth you’d be hard-pressed to find a better combo than Belt and Crawford

Evan Longoria: Obi-Wan Kenobi

Evan Longoria is a wily old veteran whose best days may be behind him, but he can still kick some butt and impart wisdom on new Giants. He really does play the Obi-Wan Kenobi role on the team, taking young players under his wing and teaching them the ways of baseball.

Not only that, but he even has an Obi-Wan-like beard to go along with it! We also know that Obi-Wan is a very serene character, not prone to outbursts of anger. Longoria is very much the same way, going about his business in a professional fashion and getting things done.

One could also make the argument that Buster Posey fits this mold as well, but the next slide will show the Star Wars character who truly captures that essence of Buster Posey.
