Best Giant 

Madison Bumgarner

There's a superlative young star on the San Francisco Giants. A multitool player who can win a game with his bat, glove, or arm and is the reigning National League MVP. But Buster Posey won in our magazine last year, so we're giving this one to the team's transcendent young starter, Madison Bumgarner.

The dominant young lefty shook off a late-season funk with a dominant World Series start last year, and he hasn't looked back. Thus far in the Giants' young season, he's been their de-facto staff ace and a strikeout machine. He's the man you want on the mound — pitching to Buster.
