Now Playing 1B for the Giants, JT Snow!

Surprised no one posted on this yet, but according to the SF Chronicle - http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/chronicle/archive/2006/05/24/SPG4LJ0C5E1.DTL - the Giants might be kicking the tires towards Snow's return.  That might explain the odd talk about carrying one less pitcher in order to carry another position player.  

Holy Guacamole Batman!  What's worse, playing Vizcaino at 1B or bringing back Snow at even the league's minimum but costing us a low level prospect?  

I liked Snow when many fans were ragging on him - AT&T Mays Field killed his power, but he still had 20 HR/year power on the road and his OBP was great in the #2 spot - but last year he couldn't even hit for power on the road - even when he had his bad years with injuries bothering him, he still hit for power on the road - so I think he is done.

Maybe if they brought him back as a 1B instructor for Vizcaino and Niekro and all the organizational OF that Jack Hiatt wants to learn 1B, we already have Darren Lewis instructing OF and Kirt Manwaring instructing C, it would be wholely appropriate to have him teaching 1B, particularly Ishikawa, if he's our future starting 1B (though I've heard that he already has MBL caliber defense).

But I see no need for bringing Snow back, particularly if it requires us paying more than league minimum and costs us even a low level prospect.  At this point, we might be better off bringing back Andre Gallaraga or Will Clark than Snow.
