Everyone knows that the San Francisco Giants struggled last year trying to score runs.
They ranked last in the MLB in runs scored, but yet they still finished with 86 wins. This offseason, Brian Sabean and the Giants management’s goal was to keep their star-studded rotation intact and improve their offense.
They were able to do this by adding Melky Cabrera, Angel Pagan and Ryan Theriot.
Theriot was a very important addition to the dismal lineup. He will have a great impact on the offense whether he is in the game or supporting the team on the bench.
Many fans have grown impatient with Sabean's consistent signing of old veterans who are past their prime and are not going to break out ever again.
But Theriot has been a pretty decent player throughout his career. His consistency has earned him a job for seven seasons now for three different teams. He has produced well for every team and the Giants were wise to get him this offseason.
Here are a few reasons why he was a good pickup.
