SF Giants Rumors

Giants Prefer Corey Hart Over Prince Fielder?

By Bryan Rose

So says the word from Henry Schulman. I however, don’t buy it. Nor does the Bagg’s.

I’m sure the Giants wouldn’t mind Hart – but to say they’re enamored with the right fielder is a bit strong. To say they’re more interested in Hart than they are Fielder, well, that’s silly. While Hart is a better fielder than Burrell, by no stretch is he better than average on the defensive end and offensively, you’d have a hard time convincing me that Hart would put up that much better numbers than Pat the Bat given equal playing time. Not only that, arbitration eligible as Hart is – that upcoming contract is going to be grossly overpaid.

The Giants already have a good number of one dimensional and semi one dimensional outfielders – Burrell, Rowand, Scheirholtz. What are you going to do with them?

While it’s understandable to see why the Giants brass have an interest….I guess…I have a hard time believing they value Hart over Fielder and would part with Sanchez for Hart.
