They were great years that definitely strengthened his Hall of Fame aspirations.
What San Francisco achieved may be enough for the possibility of immortality, now strengthened by the championship obtained in 2023 with the Texas Rangers, the first of this franchise that took him out of 4 years of retirement; They convinced him and made him understand that he was the right person to control the project that now enjoys the best champagne, the only one that put them as champions of the Major Leagues.
