The Giants need a serious upgrade in LF, Sabean better address it this year!
The Giants arent going to go big on Choo or Ellsbury nor do they want to sacrifice their first rd pick for someone like Cruz. I just dont see a big upgrade in LF in the Giants future.
Baer hinted that we werent going to spend significant money on LF, and pitching was the priority.
Honestly I would be pretty disappointed with a Vogelsong/Petit 5 starter battle. I think Vogelsong had a good run, but its probably time to move on, unless hes down with being a long man in the pen.
Theres just too many decent, cheaper options at 5 starter to settle for those 2.
I'm all for moving on from Vogey but who are some of the examples of decent and cheaper option for the #5?
Not cheaper than Vogey, but fairly cheap in general. Its not too hard to upgrade that spot.

He's a good dude and I'm sure he's a glue guy but his weight issue will be a career killer soon. About age 30 you can't be fat and do MLB type things.
its not that big of a deal, he still makes really good defenseive plays for his size and weight isnt an issue for other home run guys. (Prince, Howard)
26 homers in 1000 at bats over the past 2 years does not put Sandoval in the class of a home run guy. His weight is most certainly an issue.
correct but AT&T park is not a hitters park
OK. Well in last 2 years he has 13 homers in 485 at bats on the road. Panda is a good hitter when in shape but he simpy isnt a power hitter. Also, over his career he hits a homer every 3.4 times on the road vs 3.3 times at home. In other words, no difference.
