San Francisco has dug itself a huge hole — its 11 wins are tied for the fewest in the majors — but still has time to recover, even without ace Madison Bumgarner. There is no time to waste, however, or the Giants soon will be sellers.
Eduardo Nunez, acquired last summer to man the hot corner, is providing no production this season for an offense sorely lacking for power. Enter Moustakas, who can provide the power (eight homers) and spark that San Francisco’s lineup desperately needs.
What makes the 12-win Royals more likely to sell than the 11-win Giants? So many of KC’s best players – Moustakas and Cain included – are free agents after this season.
