The San Francisco Giants should consider trading for a marquee leftfielder like J.D. Martinez or Ryan Braun.

April 12, 2017

BeliEVEN is dead, but the hopes of the Giants' homegrown core, which returns intact for another run, are not. A strong lineup could be undercut, however, by a leftfield platoon of Jarrett Parker and Mac Williamson. Both project as replacement-level players, and San Francisco needs more. The future is now at AT&T Park, so dealing a top prospect like pitcher Tyler Beede to fill the hole (say, with the Tigers' J.D. Martinez or the Brewers' Ryan Braun) would be justified. A trade like that could add three crucial wins to a team within striking distance of the Dodgers in the NL West.
