Word on the street is the San Francisco Giants were in the contract negotiations with Cuban Slugger Jose Abreu. They decided to withdraw themselves once the price was really starting to rise. The reason being, if they signed Abreu, they’d still have to move their best first baseman to left field. If Abreu was a left fielder I’m sure we would be talking about the big contract Abreu just signed with the Giants!
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says the Giants might consider kicking the tires on catcher Brian McCann. If McCann can also play some first base this might be an interesting move for the Giants. You would have a big left-handed bat in your lineup either at catcher of first base. McCann and Buster Posey can alternate and it would keep both of them really fresh. The only downside again would be sending our best first baseman Brandon Belt to left field.
