Here’s the first official #BCrawBracket. Favorite SF Giants player (1990-2009). Players only had to be on the team at some point between ‘90-‘09 to qualify (Buster had 17 ABs in ‘09). This is FAVORITE player, not BEST player. Enjoy! pic.twitter.com/6p8BFI8cLb

Brandon Crawford grew up in Pleasanton rooting for the Giants, and this baseball hiatus is taking him back to his fandom roots.
The longtime San Francisco shortstop is remembering a couple decades he watched the Giants and did not play for the Giants. Who’s your favorite Giant from 1990-2009? Well, now you can vote on it.
Crawford’s bracket — which he emphasizes tries to rank the favorite players and not the best — of course is led by No. 1 seed Buster Posey, who played in seven games in 2009. (Crawford did not debut until 2011.)
Barry Bonds is the two seed, followed by Will Clark, Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner. Crawford opened up the voting this weekend and is down to a field of 32, with Kirt Manwaring being the top seed knocked off in the first round.
A little March Madness during March Sadness.
