STARTING PITCHER, 1960-73
458 games, 238 wins, 140 losses, 2,281 strikeouts, 2.84 ERA*
San Francisco's winningest pitcher, with 104 more victories than Gaylord Perry, Marichal racked up a major-league-high 191 wins in the 1960s, when pitchers such as Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale and Jim Bunning were also at their finest. Only Dodgers lefty Sandy Koufax had a higher winning percentage (.695) in the decade than the Dominican Dandy, who also set a (now-surpassed) modern major league record with a career 3.25 strikeouts-to-walks ratio.

His '93 arrival coincided with Barry Bonds's, and the former major league outfielder tied the Giants' West Coast record with 103 wins as a rookie manager. Baker went on to become the winningest San Francisco Giants manager, and his teams finished first or second in eight of 10 seasons, culminating with a seven-game loss to the Angels in the 2002 World Series.
