Golden Gate Sports resumes its recap of some of the best single-season performances in the history of the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants as we anticipate Opening Day. Today is a different sort of day as we look at 10 of the best utility seasons in the history of the Giants, dating back to their arrival in San Francisco in 1958. This is the 10th installment in the series on the Giants, as we’ve already listed the top 10 seasons for left field, relievers, catchers, second basemen, third basemen, center fielders, shortstops, starting pitchers and first basemen. To qualify at a position, a player needed 100 games at the position in a season. This category is for players who met the 100-game requirement while playing multiple positions, not reaching the 100-game threshold at any single spot. This requirement was not prorated for the strike-shortened seasons of 1981 or 1994. Before you turn the page, here are the seasons that just missed the cut: 15. Darrell Evans, 1981 (3B-1B) 14. Mark Carreon, 1995 (1B-RF-LF) 13. Matt Williams, 1996 (3B-1B-SS) 12. Mike Aldrete, 1987 (LF-1B-RF-CF) 11. Moises Alou, 2005 (LF-RF)
