I can't stop dreaming about V-Mart

TRADE CHATTER: Giants scout Paul Turco was seen at Monday's White Sox-Indians game, possibly looking at Cleveland first baseman Victor Martinez, whom the Giants are thought to admire.

It's probably too good to be true and they were really scouting Konerko or Dye, but man I'd love to get V-Mart. He's got another year left on his deal for 2010, he can play C and 1B pretty adequately. He's also already been a 3.1 WAR player for Cleveland. I'm guessing the Giants could get him without having to give up Mad Bum or Posey. Hopefully we'd keep Big V too.

I'm guessing Alderson, another decent prospect and a bullpen arm or two could get it done.

He would look awful nice hitting 4th behind Pablo. Also we could platoon him with Bengie, which will help Bengie be more effective with time off. Sadly Ishikawa wouldn't play as much, but I'm sure they'd still find ways to get him AB's and make him a defensive replacement late in games.

Vs LHP you could have Bengie catch, with VMart at 1st.

Vs RHP you could have VMart catch and Ishi at 1st.

 

Or something like that. What do you guys think?
