What Should the Giants Do About Their Outfield?

By: Ben Leonard Follow @ben___leonard The offseason isn’t supposed to be the Giants’ time to shine. Usually, they let the big spenders take the spotlight in December and January, while they make moves in July to tweak their club — it’s a strategy that’s worked out pretty well for them the past few years.  But this year, the usually “frugal” Giants have started to spend like those teams that they…
