Mock Roster Proposal

Now that Aaron Rowand is a Giant, here are some other moves to make:

Tim Lincecum for Alex Rios

then

Matt Cain for Melky Cabrera

then

Noah Lowry/Jonathan Sanchez for Coco Crisp

then

sign Mike Cameron to a 3-year/$40M deal.

then

sign Corey Patterson to a 3-year/$30M deal

The result would be this lineup:

Dave Roberts - CF/1B
Melky Cabrera - CF/2B
Alex Rios - CF/RF
Aaron Rowand - CF to rule them all
Randy Winn - CF/3B
Mike Cameron - CF/C
Coco Crisp - CF/SS
Corey Patterson - CF/LF

IT WOULD BE A LINEUP OF CENTER FIELDERS!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two things would make the Aaron Rowand signing okay:

  1. His power doesn't drop back to the 12-homer Rowand of 2005 or 2006.
  2. The Giants now try and move Randy Winn in a deal that helps solve the Giants' corner infielder problem.
The first point scares the hell out of me. In fact, I'm going to just pretend that Rowand was on a humanitarian mission for those two seasons. And the second point is pretty danged unlikely.

Meet the new Sabean, same as the old Sabean.
