All-Decade San Francisco Giants Rotation

Madison Bumgarner

2010-2019

The man who pitched his team to the crown in 2014. But the career Giant has had plenty of great moments for the rotation.

As the staff ace for several seasons, Bumgarner compiled 119 wins over the decade, held a 3.14 ERA, threw six shutouts, struck out 1,784 batters and limited baserunners to just a little over 1 per inning (1.111 WHIP).

He was also a four-time all-star and two-time silver slugger as he clobbered 19 home runs in the 10-year span.

Also, his World Series ERA in five games is 0.25. Need I say more?


Matt Cain

2010-2017

Another career Giant who spent 13 years with the organization and pitched seven seasons during the decade.

Most memorable would have to be collecting Major League Baseball’s 22nd perfect game when he faced 27 Houston Astros and set them all down in order.

Cain excelled in the 2010 postseason. He had three starts – one in each series – pitched 21 1/3 innings and allowed just a single unearned run. He was masterful.

Cain made two all-star appearances during the stretch with a 3.79 ERA over the seven seasons.


Tim Lincecum

2010-2015

The Freak himself. Lincecum certainly made a name for himself and was beloved by the locals and has always been my personal favorite Giant.

Just missed out on the Cy Young awards in this decade (2008, 2009) but he did collect two no-hitters and both came against the San Diego Padres and both nearly an exact year apart in 2013 and 2014.

It was kind of sad because Lincecum was beginning to decline as far as the statistics would say but he contributed to the collection of all three world championships.

In 13 postseason games, he held a 2.40 ERA while striking out 65 batters in 56 1/3 innings. Lincecum won both of his starts in the 2010 World Series and was important in relief during their 2012 sweep of the Tigers.

His five-year stretch included two all-star games and 1028 strikeouts.
