The world champion San Francisco Giants have made strides towards their goal of winning another title. After a 52-year period in San Francisco with no World Series championships, the Giants have now won in two of the last three years.

GM Brian Sabean has already signed three players who were instrumental to the Giants' success in 2012. Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro and Jeremy Affeldt will all return in the orange and black.

In addition to these three, the Giants are looking to add a right-handed-hitting outfielder to share time with Gregor Blanco in left field. The Giants have been considering Cody Ross, Scott Hairston and Ryan Ludwick, who just agreed to return to the Reds on a two-year contract.

The Giants are also looking for a right-handed relief pitcher to bolster their bullpen. They failed to tender Brian Wilson a contract. Now a free agent, Wilson is shopping his services.

Let's take a closed look at the pros and cons of acquiring each of the players the Giants have already signed or are targeting.
