Giants eye Brewers' Ryan Braun

New, 5 comments

The Giants have been in the market for an outfielder all season long and may be starting to pick up their efforts to land a big time power hitter. The SF Chronicle is reporting that Giants GM Brian Sabean and one of his top scouts were in attendance to watch several Brewers players, including outfielders Ryan Braun and Corey Hart

The Brewers and Giants have long been connected as the teams have had mutual interest in each others players for some time. The Brewers have even discussed the possibility of trading Prince Fielder for Matt Cain, but those talks never materialized into anything significant. 

If the Giants want any chance of landing Braun, they need to be willing to surrender a top prospect for him. The Brewers would likely accept solid pitching for him, as they have one of the worst pitching staffs in the league.
