Didi Gregorius

Reiter wrote: “A move to San Francisco is logical, especially as the soon-to-be 33-year-old Brandon Crawford isn’t producing like an everyday player should anymore.”

While it’s a fair point that Crawford no longer producing at an everyday level after he posted a dreadful 75 OPS+ over 560 plate appearances in 2019, he seems to be conveniently ignoring the fact that Crawford is still owed $30.4 million over the next two years.

For better or worse, the team is going to try to get something out of that investment.

There’s also the fact that Gregorius will likely receive a qualifying offer from the New York Yankees this offseason, which means signing him will require draft pick compensation. Parting with draft picks would seem to run counter to the Giants’ recent efforts to rebuild the farm system

Verdict: Disagree
