Xavier anyone?

Tommy John surgery is serious, but Xavier Nady can hit. He's right handed and hits for a decent average and with power. He beats up on lefties, and hits righthanders just fine (lifetime .270). Sure, he strikes out a bit more than we'd like, but he has always hit well with RISP. He's only 31. When healthy he is a good fielder, has an excellent arm (RF) and can also play first base. He's a bright, local guy with something to prove. Best of all -- considering the Giants' need to conserve $$ -- he will come relatively cheap. Last year the Yankees paid him $6.5M and he barely had any at bats after winning the starting RF job. Why would you bother with a Swisher or a Dye when you've got your #5 hitter living locally?

If he's ready for spring training (which the reports say he is), what say you?
