On paper, we have a sever power shortage from the entire team.
People forget that this team was last in the all of baseball in homeruns last season. I am not saying that we need to hit homeruns to win, and our ballpark comes int to play a little bit, but we needed to improve on this from last year. And all signs point to the fact that we havent and wont.
Who forgets that? While I would love more power, this team will always be built around pitching, speed, and defense exactly because of the ballpark they play in. I'm not into the gloom and doom of we didn't get any better in the offseason. Belt should be a better hitter with more power this year, Sandoval doesn't have any more hamate bones to break, Pence (I believe) will be better than he was for us last year, and Crawford hit well over the last part of the season. In addition, Pagan is a triples machine and we have him back.
So yes, we are lacking power in LF right NOW, but let's just see what happens before we start "trashing" the Giants offseason if you get my drift. Sabean's best moves usually occur in season as we all know.
