Chris Haft of tells SF Giants Rumors that he sees Melky Cabrera and Angel Pagan as assets overall, but thinks the offensive help they’ll provide will be only incremental. He says the San Francisco Giants are hoping both players will be motivated to have big years because they’re heading into free agency.   Haft does believe the Giants can have a decent lineup if Buster Posey and Freddy Sanchez return healthy and effective. Aubrey Huff will also have to rebound or Brandon Belt and Nate Schierholtz take quantum steps forward.

  • i beleive that surprise will come from catcher hector sanchez who will force buster posey to first base.also that big first baseman pill will force a platoon with schierhokz.i think brandon belt will become outstanding in left field and with pagan or cabrera leading of followed by freddy sanchez and sandoval batting 4 th behind posey and in front of belt and pill/schierholz,hector sanchez will bea terror in 7 th slot.crawford will hit in 8th slot and with surprising prepared for a shock
