On the day of the 2010 All-Star break, the San Francisco Giants were pitted in fourth place in division standings. In some ways, their lack of success seemed more predictable than surprising: Manager Bruce Bochy's "Dirty Dozen" included an ace pitcher still recovering from a marijuana bust, a young hitter locked in a hitting slump, and an MVP seemingly condemned to the disabled list. Only those willing to take giant leaps of faith could imagine that this collection of misfits, eccentrics, and walking wounded would do what no Giants team had done since 1954: win a World Series. Andrew Baggarly's recap of an unbelievable season makes you believe in powers beyond our miserly imaginations.
