Another Stint of Velez

Well it's official, Eugenio Velez is once again a San Francisco Giant. It was clear after yesterdays game that the giants were going to have to send down a pitcher as carrying 12 hitters is just not reasonable especially in the NL. I think Joe Martinez was probably the right guy to send down but do we really need more of Eugenio Velez? 

As hated as Velez is he is always going to be intriguing to the front office due to his combination of speed and versatility. Currently the Giants only have one guy on the roster that can regularly steal bases so it is nice to have a little more speed on the base paths and it is nice to have another utility guy who can hold his own weight at almost any infield position. With all of this going for him I can understand how Velez would seem like a good candidate for a call up. That would be if he hadn't already had 4 stints in the majors to prove himself and if Bowker wasn't tearing things up in the minors. 

Velez now has over 600 at bats in the majors and with his inability to draw a walk and get himself on base like a leadoff man should it just makes no sense to not give Bowker a chance. It would also be nice to have Bowker in the Majors in order to showcase him for a potential deadline deal.  I wonder if this is Velez's last chance with the club or will he still be getting called up in september 5 years down the road?
