The Giants

The Giants are going to need at least two young everyday players to step it up this year.  I hope it can be at First and Second.  They have two kids there with great potential. Ortmeier has decent power but is learning first base. Snow will be able to help him defensivly but the Giants need a third or fifth hole hitter to be able to drive in some runs.  Fransden has shown some promise but has not been able to follow through with it.  He is a slightly above average fielder and a below average hitter.  The Giants need him to blossom and be able to fill the sixth or seventh hole with some consistent fielding and hitting. The Giants need these things to be able to keep there young starters from over pitching.  The Giants strength will be there starters and if they have some confidence in some run support that will make them so much better.
