Russ Ortiz to the Giants? Eh??


Russ Ortiz, after going 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA in 3 starts for AAA Scranton (Yanks), has opted out of his contract and is currently looking at contenders, including San Francisco.

Ortiz clearly struggled in his last few major league appearances this year.  That 9 run, 2.1 IP game against the Cubs was brutal to watch.  His 8 R, 9 H, 5 BB appearance in San Francisco, while much appreciated, was dismal, even with his 7K tally. However, he had several impressive games scattered in this season (and a 20+ inning scoreless streak at one point), and if not for the 2 games leading to his release and subsequent AAA stint, he'd have decent (if not overly impressive) 5th starter numbers. 

I'm not saying I'd be crazy to have him back (OK ok, I wouldn't like to have him back), but, for argument's sake, he would provide the Giants with some depth and more options to work with.

What say Ye, McCoven, to welcoming back Ortiz as a 5th starter or long reliever out of the pen?

EDIT: Any ideas on what a working title could be for a Russ & Ramon Ortiz sit-com/reality series?  I'm sure Natto could design some great teasers.
