Joe Panik went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Friday against the Padres.
Panik has spent considerable time hitting low in the order, but when he's been put in the one or two holes, he's gotten on base 35 percent of the time and also slugged nearly .450. By any measure, he's been one of the Giants' best players this year, and he'd seem to deserve a bit more respect. Sep 30 - 1:57 AM
