ESPN: Giants Contact Juan Pierre

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Giants GM Brian Sabean contacted Juan Pierre about playing center field for them next season. Pierre is expected to command a deal of 3 yr. 30 million. He had a great year with the Cubs and deserves an upgrade. I think teams will look to other center fielders first that can do the job and will be cheaper. The Giants have the money to spend on Pierre and will need a fast outfielder to back up Barry Bonds in left.
