According to this post, Jose Reyes could be had from the Mets. If there is one thing the Giants need to address in the offseason is the SS position. I can only fantasize about the Giants with Jose Reyes at the top of the lineup and gobbling up everything up the middle of the diamond. I don;t know what it would take, but if the cost was Dirty and a couple of prospects, I'd be on board.
Happy Veteran's Day! Let's all take a moment and remember the veterans that have shaped our lives today. Veterans like Edgar Renteria, Juan Uribe, Aubrey Huff, and Pat Burrell. Without veterans like these fine gentlemen, the world would be a much worse place.
and see just how wrong people were
Anybody know this guy? He had 29 years with the team, with a good track record of signees. At least he got to see the SF Giants win it all once before he headed to the locker room. RIP John. "Shafer, who worked as a Territorial Scout in the Pacific Northwest, was hired by San Francisco in 1982 and was responsible for signing some notable Giants draft picks, including Trevor Wilson (1985), Eric Gunderson (1987), Steve Decker and Steve Reed (1988), Dan Carlson (1989), Marvin Benard (1992), Keith Foulke (1994), Chris Magruder (1998), and Jason Ellison and Brian Burres (2000). "
"Sad news out of the Pacific Northwest tonight. According to Kirby Arnold of the Everett Herald, longtime Mariners broadcaster Dave Niehaus passed away from a heart attack this afternoon at the age of 75." RIP Dave.
Brandon Belt, 1B, Giants: Hitting .365/.414/.571 in Arizona. I think he's completely legitimate...he's surprisingly fast and agile for a big player, and his swing is totally reworked since he was in college. Likely getting a Grade A- for me, and possibly the best first base prospect not named Hosmer.
This is a fish I was hoping the Giants would have tried to catch.
MLB Trade Rumors speculates Juan Uribe going to the Dodgers. Obviously their options on which players should go where holds as much water as experts guessing which team will win the world series... But I just don't know what I would do if Uribe starts wearing that dodger blue uniform
Great video from the bicycling world honoring the 2010 San Francisco World Champion Giants!
