The San Francisco Giants are significantly lacking in star power and a bit of gloom has set in with the fanbase. Landing Nolan Arenado would instantly reverse those trends.

While a fair amount of the San Francisco Giants fanbase has been staunchly in opposition to anything Farhan Zaidi has done this offseason, a trade for Nolan Arenado could be the move that brings them all back.

The Colorado Rockies star has seen his name pop up on the rumor mill this winter, despite signing a big extension last offseason.

The latest report gave Arenado a 50/50 chance of being traded:

What would the Rockies be looking for in return?

Morosi touched on that as well:

The Giants also happen to have that same type of high-ceiling, right-handed hitting outfield prospect in Heliot Ramos, and a few others that could entice the Rockies as well.

Ramos posted numbers in his 19-year-old season that rival those of Mike Trout, Cody Bellinger, and Christian Yelich at the same age.

He has the arm and glove to fit in center, and anybody’s power will play in Coors Field.

So, is an Arenado trade a realistic possibility?

Ahead I’ve made my case as to why the Giants should give up a prized prospect like Ramos if it means landing a superstar like Arenado.
