Rule 5 mumbo jumbo

http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/app/news/article.jsp?ymd=20061207&content_id=147804&vkey= news_milb&fext=.jsp

The Rule 5 has come and gone and like always and forever the Giants didn't take a risk or change philosophy. Los Gigantes didn't take anyone in the Major League portion of the draft, though some other teams made some interesting selections, Namely former #1 pick Josh Hamilton by the Reds from the Marlins and Reliever Soria from the Padres to the Royals.

A bunch of Giants were selected, the Most Notable was Alfredo Simon in the Major League portion by the O's, I wish him luck, I always heard he had great stuff but he was horribly mishandled by the Giants who shuttled him between starter and reliever for the entirety of his time spent here. I predict he will be returned to the giants sometime over the course of the season. I believe Jesse Floyd, Trey lunsford, exemplary glove man Brian Buscher and some others were taken from the Giants as well, follow the link it will tell you exactly.

The Lone selection by the Giants came in the AAA phase of the draft, SS Trey Webb from Washington. His numbers are fairly uninspiring but he is a SS, so maybe its a sign that the Giants will shop Vizquel at midseason if/when the season is in the metaphorical pooper. Also, and this is purely speculation...as was the last comment but anyway...he might have unharnessed speed a la Velez and the Giants think they can unleash it, he did steal like 20+ bases last year.

Anyway, thats it, follow the link, have fun, Im going to crawl back to my corner and weep over the littany of bad moves Sabean has perpatrated this offseason.
