The San Francisco Giants are in a golden era.

With two World Series victories in the last three seasons, the San Francisco Giants might be entering the best era of the organization's history, according to Grant Brisbee at McCovey Chronicles.

Brisbee adds:

"This is it. It's not going to get better. Decades from now, young Giants fans will look back and wish they were fans in this period of Giants baseball."

Brisbee also claims that 2012 was the best season of Giants baseball in the history of the organization and the past three seasons will always be remembered as the "golden era."

The Giants defeated the Texas Rangers in five games in 2010 for their first championship since 1954. It was also the organization's first World Series victory since moving to San Francisco in 1958.

San Francisco defeated the Tigers 4-3 in 10 innings in Game 4 on Sunday to complete the sweep of Detroit and win the 2012 World Series.

The Giants were nearly eliminated twice during the 2012 post-season, as they were down 2-0 to the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS and 3-1 to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, but came back to win both series. San Francisco finished the season by winning seven straight playoff games.
