One young fan wrote to Giants GM Bobby Evans begging and pleading the Giants to sign Melancon.
Well it appears the Giants heard the fan loud and clear, even hashtagging #WeAreListening. In the letter, the fan emphasizes the need for Melancon, writing he/she "really really really" wants the Giants to get him "very very soon."
Melancon joins the Giants as a closer their bullpen could definitely use. The 31-year-old tallied a 1.64 ERA with 47 saves and 65 strikeouts last season with the Washington Nationals.
