Hunter has more power, and is a bigger offensive threat than Nate. Nate’s numbers aren’t bad, but having Hunter on your team really doesn’t hurt. Giants are in win now mode. He helps that. He’s good, guys.Plus. The Giants gave up a top prospect who is blocked. He’s a catcher, and Buster Posey isn’t going anywhere any time soon. He’s very young and very good.
