Ever since one Barry Lamar Bonds retired after the 2007 season, left field has been a continuous revolving door for the Giants. The team has had various players man the position, some effective, like Pat Burrell, and some not, like Jeff Francoeur, No one player has stuck for any long stretch of time, though. Burrell got old fast, Fred Lewis fell down a lot, Melky Cabrera got busted...

Three key questions for the Tampa Bay Rays

Watching Joe Maddon’s team every year, you get a real sense of appreciation for the way he manages to get every last drop of production out of his players.
