George Kontos won two World Series in six seasons with the San Francisco Giants, so it's natural he'd take the time to put together a proper goodbye.

The 32-year-old reliever was claimed off waivers Sunday by the Pittsburgh Pirates, ending his Giants stint at 300 games with the franchise, and he took to his Instagram account to let San Francisco fans know what that long tenure meant to him.

Kontos crafted a 3.05 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with the Giants over 309 2/3 innings.
