With a title drought that started in New York and carried on for more than five decades after the move to the west coast, the San Francisco Giants and their fans were growing restless, waiting for a team like the 2010 roster and that one magical postseason run. The anticipation, memories, and celebrated relief of the season when it finally came together are captured in this chronicle of the World Series season of the Giants. Written in entertaining prose, the book is as much an enjoyable story to be reread through the years as it is a factual account of the events that brought the elusive title to the Giants.The hulking pitcher wasna#39;t drafted until the 11th round in 2006, mostly because he had a checkered reputation. ... Unbeknownst to him, thata#39;s where the playersa#39; parking lot was located, and the baseball smashed the sunroof of Giants announcer Dave Flemminga#39;s new Honda Civic. ... But he pledged to pay the repair bill.
