Tony Watson a perfect signing for the Giants
The Giants were supposedly right up to their expense threshold without much wiggle room. They badly needed a left-hander to step up in the bullpen.

Somehow with back-end payment structure and incentive clauses, they managed to sign a quality reliever while still staying under the luxury tax limit. Watson has a 2.68 ERA in seven major league seasons.
