I can make a case San Francisco is a better team with Blanco in LF anyway. The Giants are a tremendous defensive team, a plus defender at every spot except 3B. And I would say Sandoval does enough offensively to make up for his deficiencies with the leather.

Melky is not a good outfielder at all. Blanco made two terrific defensive plays in LF in Game 1. I doubt Melky makes either of those plays. You wonder how the game would have changed if those catches don't get made.
