So now that we’ve solved starting pitching, let’s find the Giants their outfielder. Heyward is an interesting case because to some, he is one of the best two-way players the game has ever seen to start a career. On the other hand, he doesn’t hit for enough power or have enough of the traditional numbers to warrant a middle-of-the-order payday.
Heyward would be a perfect Giant, and there were reports that the Giants were trying to trade for Heyward last off-season before the Cardinals swooped in and traded for him. So, we can expect the Giants to be interested. However, is his price tag going to scare away most teams? Will he be worth every penny, or will he be a guy who looks more like Jayson Werth than Manny Ramirez?
