Infographic of the Day: Who Won the World Series for the Giants?

A superb chart, showing the performance of the team's best and worst players, game by game.

If you're a San Francisco Giants fan, you're probably still savoring the sweet, sweet season that led to the team's improbable World Series win. Thanks to the power of infographics, you can relive every game of it.

    Pretty cool stuff, but how is Renteria completely missing from the data? I understand he didn't have an impressive season and didn't even play in half the games, but World Series MVP honors makes me think he should be represented here. How'd that work out?
