San Francisco Giants Sleepers

Hitting on sleepers from different organizations, I began to think of the San Francisco Giants. Is there a team that has received more negative coverage this off-season? And if there is, then I re-ask: Is there a West Coast team that has? I do not think so, and I expect that to only worsen as fantasy baseball kicks into high gear over the next two months.

Why? The Giants are old. From top to bottom their everyday line-up, to the extent these geezers can play everyday, is old. The youngster? 31-year-old Pedro Feliz. No matter how much positive coverage Matt Cain gets, and he will get A LOT of it, the miasma of creaky knees and aching backs will not lift.

As such, all of the Giants hitters will be undervalued. Can you name one who won't?
