Nori Aoki will make the Giants the most photogenic team in MLB

On Tuesday, the Giants announced a one-year deal with Nori Aoki, which means they've gained a solid defensive corner outfielder. Yes, Aoki can put together a reasonable .287 average and a .355 OBP, but we know San Francisco was just trying to corner the market on photogenic MLB players.
