Greg Minton -- February 15, 2015

Inspired by the book Few and Chosen: Defining Giants Greatness Across the Eras by Giants great Bobby Thomson and Phil Pepe, I thought I would devote my nickname meme to Giants players for the past several months. This is the end of the string. 

Last month I wrote about right-handed relief pitcher Hoyt "Sarge" Wilhelm.  This month I was going to write about a left-handed Giants relief pitcher.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find any with a good nickname.  Jeremy Affeldt certainly deserves one. 

Instead I will write about another right-handed Giants relief pitcher Greg Minton, the Moon Man.  He made the Giants a lot more fun in the 1980s.
