The team has also given Giants fans' a few treats to go along with their not-as-bad-as-expected-ness. There is, for instance, the ascendance of Timmy Lincecum to Pitching God and SI Cover Boy. Then there's the emergence of Jonathan Sanchez, Fred Lewis, and Brian Wilson as genuine major leaguers and the out-of-nowhere competence of Emmanuel Burriss and John Bowker. In other words, there's been just enough surprises to make things half-way entertaining. Kinda like Hancock.
