I'll get right to the point: What's going to happen to Fred Lewis? We were counting on him last year and he absolutely blew it, but you got the idea that a lot of it was due to his confidence issues. He clearly has raw baseball talent, but obviously he's not playing anytime soon for us. -- Mark C., San Francisco Lewis indeed appears to have fallen out of favor with the organization. I envision this scenario: Lewis will play well enough in the Cactus League to earn a starting role, but that will make it easier for the Giants to trade him, which they will do(!!!1!ONE). Bochy charitably said at the Winter Meetings that Lewis would be "in the mix" for an outfield spot. That was before the Giants signed DeRosa and declared that he would play left field. Lewis' 2009 performance hardly inspired confidence, but he fits the profile of a leadoff hitter better than any other Giants player, despite his lack of enthusiasm for that role. He probably needs a change of scenery -- too bad, because ideally he should be helping the Giants.
