If the San Francisco Giants ever win another World Series, we’ll probably go to the ensuing championship parade for that one as well. However, we probably won’t get there at 7 am and wait again — not unless I can get confirmation that they’ll limit the number of parade walkers by about half what we saw on Wednesday.

At least standing in front allowed us to take some great photos, so many that I’m still posting pics three days later (and I haven’t even got to all the front office people, politicians and media personalities, which are still to come).

In this edition of San Francisco Giants World Series Parade photos (otherwise known as: “people we saw while inhaling more than trace amounts of secondhand THC”), we have the relievers. We were able to get pretty good shots of everyone except Guillermo Mota, who I didn’t make much of an effort to capture on my Digital SLR memory card as his car drove by — apologies to all the Mota fans out there.

Let’s go in order of usage during the postseason, from lowest to highest…

Brian Wilson couldn’t be contained during the 2010 parade, when he hopped out of his faux cable car and walked the streets, soaking up the adulation only a flavor-of-the-week TV star could ever hope to understand. This time he stayed in a cable car instead of riding in the back of a convertible, looking like a hipster pseudo-Rastafarian on his way to a Jazzercise class in 1986.

Here’s the guy whose head Wilson will forever play like a piano in a famous .GIF, Clay Hensley, along with his family:

The guys standing behind me cheered quite a bit for Jose Mijares as his car drove by. I was surprised, given that Mijares had a 10.12 ERA during the postseason. However, he did retire Prince Fielder in his lone appearance in Game 1, the only World Series appearance for the left-hander from Venezuela. Mijares is arbitration-eligible, so I would expect him to continue pitching for the Giants next season.

Javier Lopez is the only Giant who has been a part of three championship teams (2007 Red Sox, 2010 Giants, 2012 Giants). Lopez only allowed two earned runs in his last 32 appearances of the regular season (18 IP), so I was a bit surprised that he only made five appearances (3 IP) during the playoffs. Lopez’s last outing of 2012 came during the torrential downpour of NLCS Game 7, even though he seemed likely to face Fielder at least once in the World Series. Nonetheless, Lopez will try to earn his fourth ring next year, and he’ll do it in San Francisco.

George Kontos could change his name to LL Cool K, because ladies love the guy who’s known for using the most exclamation points of any Giant on Twitter.¬†Oh, he also made eight postseason appearances … not bad for a guy who started the year in Fresno after the Giants acquired him from the Yankees for backup catcher Chris Stewart.

***

Santiago Casilla may have been the most pleasant surprise of the postseason. Who would’ve predicted that after Casilla’s first playoff outing (1 ER allowed in an inning during Game 1 of the NLDS), it would be smooth sailing? One walk and five hits allowed over his last six (scoreless, I might add) innings!?!? Casilla didn’t get the attention these next two guys received, but he has had a quietly amazing three-year run with the Giants.

This was the best photo we got of Jeremy Affeldt, who kept his right arm up by his face like this the whole time. Guess he was conserving that left arm, seeing as it will earn him a lucrative multi-year deal pretty soon. Will that contract come from the Giants after Affeldt made his free agency case on national television with a dominant postseason?

The crowd went crazy as Sergio Romo walked down the street, darting back and forth, waving at everyone and smiling so much his cheeks were probably killing him on Thursday morning. Just seeing the guy who closed out all three postseason series would’ve been enough to give a thrill to the million-plus in attendance, but the t-shirt reading “I JUST LOOK ILLEGAL” took the idea of “ROMOBOMBING” a photo to an entirely different level.

To think, Romo was one of the easiest Giants to chat with one-on-one since I started getting access to regular season games in August of 2011. Dude was on The Tonight Show on Thursday.
