10. Dave Kingman
Kingman finished his 16-year career with 442 home runs, the 42nd-most in MLB history. He also drove in 1,210 runs and registered a .780 OPS.
A three-time All-Star, Kingman bookended his career in the Bay Area, spending his first four seasons in San Francisco and his final three in Oakland. Kingman launched 100 homers with the A's and 77 with the Giants.
9. Dusty Baker
The longtime Giants manager actually played one season with the Giants and two with the A's. Baker finished his playing career with a .278/.347/.432 slash line, 242 home runs, 1,013 RBI and 137 stolen bases.
Baker was twice named an All-Star and won two Silver Slugger Awards, as well as a Gold Glove. He won his lone World Series in 1981 as a member of the Dodgers.
8. Barry Zito
Zito is the only player on this list who only played for the A's and Giants. The left-hander won a Cy Young award and a World Series championship, and was a three-time All-Star.
Zito finished his career with a record of 165-143 and a 4.04 ERA. Of course, his best seasons came with the A's from 2000-06. However, while he never lived up to his massive contract with the Giants, he was pivotal in helping them win the 2012 World Series.
7. Kevin Mitchell
Mitchell was a highly-productive slugger throughout his 13-year career. He finished with a .284/.360/.520 slash line, 234 home runs and 760 RBI, averaging 31 homers and 101 RBI per 162 games.
Mitchell won the 1989 National League MVP with the Giants, blasting a career-high 47 long balls. He also won the Silver Slugger that season and was twice named an All-Star. Mitchell finished his career with the A's in 1998.
6. Tim Hudson
Though he never won a Cy Young, Hudson was a top-flight pitcher for 17 seasons, finishing his career with a 222-133 record and a 3.49 ERA. He was a four-time All-Star and a World Series champion in 2014 with the Giants.
Hudson spent his first six seasons in Oakland, going 92-39 for an incredible .702 winning percentage, along with a 3.30 ERA. He finished his career with the Giants, maintaining a 3.91 ERA as he neared the age of 40.
5. Miguel Tejada
A lot of people forget that Tejada played his second-to-last season with the Giants in 2011. Of course, his best years came in Oakland, where he was a home run and RBI machine.
Tejada finished his career with a .285/.336/.456 slash line, along with 307 home runs and 1,302 RBI. He won the American League MVP with the A's in 2002 and was a six-time All-Star, winning the All-Star Game MVP in 2005.
4. Vida Blue
Blue is the top pitcher on this list and with good reason. The left-hander went 209-161 with a 3.27 ERA over his 17-year career. His list of accomplishments goes on and on: MVP, Cy Young Award, ERA title, six-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion.
In nine seasons with the A's, Blue went 124-86 with a 2.95 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He spent six seasons in San Francisco, going 72-58 with a 3.52 ERA and 1.31 WHIP.
3. Joe Morgan
We have officially reached the Hall of Fame portion of the list. Morgan played an incredible 22 major league seasons, hitting .271/.392/.427 with 268 home runs, 1,133 RBI and 689 stolen bases. He was a two-time MVP, five-time Gold Glover and 10-time All-Star.
Morgan joined the Giants toward the end of his career in 1981 and played two seasons in San Francisco. He played his final major league season in Oakland in 1984. Morgan's best years came in Cincinnati, where he won a pair of World Series titles.
2. Orlando Cepeda
Most people have no idea Cepeda suited up for the A's -- to be fair, it was only three games. But it counts! The Hall of Famer began his career with the Giants in 1958 and won the Rookie of the Year.
Cepeda also won an MVP award, a World Series and was named an All-Star 11 times. He slashed .297/.350/.499 over his 17-year career, with 379 home runs and 1,365 RBI.
1. Willie McCovey
The late, great Willie McCovey tops the list. His 521 home runs are tied for 20th in MLB history and his 1,555 RBI rank 46th. He played 22 seasons, slashing .270/.374/.515.
McCovey played the vast majority of his career (19 years) in San Francisco, including his first 15 seasons. He also spent three years with the Padres and played 11 games with the A's in 1976. McCovey won both MVP and Rookie of the Year and made six All-Star Games.
