Denard Span signs 3 year deal with Giants.

3 years for 31 million with possibly for incentives according to Ken Rosenthal. One less suitor for Fowler now.

SFG has had a really good offseason. Not sure if FGs agrees or not, but they're pretty clearly the #2 team in the NL right now.

They are still behind the Cubs, Dodgers, Nats, and Mets on FG.

I don't think the Giants are the 2nd best team currently in the NL, but I think it's closer than a 6 win gap that FG has them at with the Dodgers. Partially because I'm not remotely sold on Joc Pederson as a 3 WAR guy in 2016 or Yasiel Puig as a 4+ WAR guy. For that matter, they're also cutting Crawford's 4.7 down to 2.4 in 2016 and I'm not sure that'd be the case either. I get dropping it some, but I think he's consistently gotten better, so a drop off that much seems more than excessive. Kershaw at 7.8 seems right, but damn.....He can have an awesome season and not hit that mark by 2 wins himself.

I'm curious what Fowler is demanding for Span to come off so much earlier than him. I'm starting to wonder if Fowler may be the bat that stayed on the market too long, because the big name OF's will likely go before him. I'm thinking there's going to be a "rush" of deals in the next week or so, with things less than 2 months away from getting going.

Still sort of surprised that Span got a clean 3 years. Thought he would have to do 2 and maybe an easy option. If he's healthy, great fit and addition for the GIants.

I'm starting to think Dex ends up with the White Sox. 3 years seems the max they'll go for an OFer currently. Not getting Upton or Cespedes for that.

In terms of Fowler, the team that makes some sense in the end would be the Nationals, if they wanted to spend. They could use an OF to give Taylor (and more importantly, Robles) some more time, but they could also go Gerardo Parra.

I wonder if he would be a big enough upgrade for Cleveland to consider. If the Orioles miss out on bigger targets, I guess I could see him as an option, although that's an odd fit.

Does feel like the market is dwindling in terms of teams that may value him high.

Really like this deal for the Giants, but this still isn't as good as the Cubs signing Heyward.

Nothing wrong with going out on a limb once in a while.

I'm betting he spends more days on the DL than games played.
