Not really shocking. Anyway, keep trading unproductive veterans for good pitching prospects, Sabes.
It's about time.
Barry Tompkins makes light of the Giants recent struggles by proposing a few solutions...
If so, that is quite a haul for the Giants. His value has fallen a bit, but he's a pretty nice piece and frankly, he'd be a top 10 prospect for us. Well done Sabes and co.
This article basically agrees with the groupthink: trading Molina was a good move that opens a spot in the outfield for an upgrade, with DeJesus being an ideal player, depending on the cost in prospects.
He is apparently 28 years old, 6'3", 210 lbs, and had a really good season in 2006 with the Orioles (4-4, 2.73 ERA, 33 Saves in 38 Save Opportunities). '09 wasn't so hot, but since he's had Tommy John surgery, he's 2-0 in 2010 with a 3.41ERA in 31.2 IP. I'm optimistic...how about you?
An article from the 2006 San Diego Union Tribune. Just change a few names and it describes the 2010 San Francisco Giants
