Credit Where It's Due, Midseason 2010

 

So far in 2010, teh Ginatz Brazzsz have made some moves that have *gasp* actually been remarkably successful. I reckon it's time we give Brian and Co. his props for due diligence done and good moves made. 

 

  1. Audrey Hoof. Oh, great -- Sabean signs yet another MLB journeyman with a mediocre track record. Except Huff has been out of his goddamned mind so far this season, having a career year. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes, and Giants fans deserve an unexpected breakout performance after years of Pierzynskis and Ledees and Hillenbrands.
  2. Gerald Motherf*cking Posey. I was among the McCoven majority who was against his callup -- why start his arb clock ticking during a lost season? Well, dude came north and made an immediate impact with the bat. Of course, he's returned to earth here of late, but his approach still looks spectacular; he's seeing a ton of pitches and driving the ball well. Oh, and that swing! /swoons. And the callup looks even better in light of the next great move...
  3. Trading Bengie Molina. This is the best Sabean move since dealing Matt Morris. Not only did the Giants add by subtracting, they actually got two viable arms in return! A shockingly good trade that frees up playing time for Buster. Of course, this move was only necessary because Sabean signed Bengie in the first place, but that's for another Diary Fanshot.
  4. Madison Bumgarner. All the usual SSS disclaimers apply, but forgive me -- I'm still giddy over MadBum's incredible performance last night. Dude is 20 years old and is three-hitting imposing MLB teams. I don't know about you, but I could barely dress myself at 20, and this kid is decimating major league lineups without the benefit of fantastic stuff. Plus he's got the additional handicap of throwing to a rookie catcher with almost no big-league experience... It's still way early, but this has all the earmarks of another solid move. 

So, in short, Sabean's shit seems to be working lately. If Pablo gets right and Torres stays hot and Timmy works out the kinks, this could be a playoff team. Of course there's still the small matter of leapfrogging the 3 teams ahead of them in the NL West, but these moves have at least made that possible.
