FACT: No team hits lefties as well as the Rays. No. 1 in the MLB, nerdz.
FACT: Madison Bumgarner is a superb lefty. Wade Miley was an okay lefty. Hopefully these things don't matter. Ryan Roberts is on the roster, which means *fingers crossed* no James Loney trying to BABIP his way to newfound success against lefties.
If the Giants had moved to Tampa Bay under Vince Naimoli in 1992...
This poll is closed
The franchise would have succeeded; Naimoli would still own the Giants/Rays.
The franchise would have flopped still; Sternberg would own the franchise.
The franchise would have flopped still; Sternberg, only 41 in 2000, would not have been able to lead the purchasing group.
I DON'T DEAL IN HYPOTHETICALS. *throws grenade into the time machine*
