DETROIT, Mich. (Bleacher Report) — Concealed in the 2012 MLB playoff mess and well-known players like Marco Scutaro, Ryan Vogelsong and Buster Posey emerging as heroes was the impact of another player trying to make a name for himself.
And, while the average fan won’t notice his impact, true Giants fans have realized how vital Gregor Blanco has been to his team’s success.
Blanco has come up with key hits and great plays in the outfield on a regular basis. He was a part of every Giant run in Game 3 of the World Series, and he made a great catch in the ninth inning. He made two great catches in Game 1, and he did the same in the NLDS and NLCS.
