San Francisco Giants: Where Have You Gone? also offers the chance for fans to reacquaint themselves through up-close and personal portraits of the players' current lives. Jack "The Ripper" Clark did the unthinkable by joining the Los Angeles Dodgers as a coach; fired by the team after a near-fatal motorcycle accident, he returns to Dodger-hating form. Bob Brenly discovers that even a World Series-winning manager can lose his job over a bad team. Greg "Moon Man" Minton renovates swimming pools and hunts elk with a bow. Joel Youngblood experiences the boom and bust of the dot-com economy, while Chris Brown avoids gunfire as a Halliburton truck driver in Iraq. Finally, listeners will touch base with coaches Mark Davis and Chris Speier for a glimpse into clubhouses in both leagues and a snapshot of the game in the early 21st century.

Mispronounsed names an annoying distraction
Where does San Francisco Giants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Who was your favorite character and why?
Stories on individual players vary, of course. Favorites included Dravecky, McCormick, Perry, and Speier. Some stories well known, inspirational. Some are catching up with old friends from youth.
What didn’t you like about Scott Peterson’s performance?
Learn to accurately pronounce names! Hearing Brian Sabean's surname as "Sa-beeen" vs "Say-be-an" was distracting and annoying. There were other errors as well, but this one was the most frequent and grating. It detracted from the book as a whole.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. Its format is ideal for periodic or sporadic listening. Nice if your time is limited. I like to have this kind of short story style book in my library for that reason.
