What If...? The SF Giants were in the Marvel Universe?

9. Tyler "Loki" Rogers

There is no one quite like Loki and there's no one quite like Tyler Rogers (well, aside from his twin brother I guess). Who else to play the role of the trickster god than the funkiest pitcher in the bullpen bunch? Submarining pitches inches from the mound dirt, Rogers uses all of the tricks up his underarm sleeve to trick batters and throw them off with his own version of Loki magic.

10. Kris Bryant is Dr. Strange

One of the late arrivals in the MCU and one of the most powerful in the comic universe, Kris Bryant serves as a quality comparable to the sorcerer supreme himself. Bryant is versatile like Dr. Strange and flies all around the outfield making highlight catches like he's magic. It also helps that they both have semi-matching beards.

11. Guardians of the Bullpen

Ragtag bunch of misfits from all across a diverse array of major league paths. Each with a chip on his shoulder and underrated by the media. Both the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Giants' bullpen have surprised critics and fans alike. They may not seem like much on paper, but they definitely get the job done and keep us on the edge of our seats. It's also safe to say, Giants Torture brand baseball is back.

12. Wilmer Flores is Hawkeye

You gotta feel terrible about that last at-bat. And just as his best friend slip through Clint Barton's grasp in Avengers: Endgame, so did Wilmer Flores' opportunity to save the Giants' postseason. Bitterness aside, Flores was another nice surprise during his short tenure in Orange and Black. Making some solid defensive plays in replacement of an injured Brandon Belt and showing up with the bat, Wilmer's consistency through the regular season won fans over to the point of singing the Friends' theme song each time he walked up. He experienced that horrid botched check-swing call and Clint lost his best friend, Natasha Romanoff, both are heartbreakers.
