Giants could be looking to sign Brian McCann.... interesting.
Which could mean we are looking to trade Pablo? McCann behind the plate, move Posey to third, trade Pablo for a LF? Or just put Belt in LF and Posey our full time 1B
Not a chance. Heyman throws a bunch of crap against the wall and hopes something sticks. McCann doesnt fit a need and will cost way too much money.
McCann fits the need of a left handed power bat and it would be a huge plus not having to worry about Posey getting hurt again
The Giants dont need a LH power bat.... they just need a power bat whether its LH or RH. Buster Posey is still going to catch the vast majority of games and it would be ridiculous to sign Brian McCann to a big deal. He is going to get a big offer to be a catcher.. not a first baseman from the Yankees, the Sox, or the Cubs most likely. That is where he brings the most to the table. McCann would be lucky to hit 18 homers playing half his games at ATT.
Forget about him. The Giants will spend their money on an OF, their bullpen, and a SP.
