post #181 of 9786
I am really unhappy with a 3/$24M for Scutaro. I wasnt even thrilled with 2/$14M. The fact that Jeff Keppinger is rumored to be getting a 2/$8M contract is all that needs to be said about this potential Scutaro deal.

I would rather play Arias at 2B everyday if paying Scutaro a 3/$24 is the alternative.

And as far as Swisher goes, I am totally down for him assuming the contract isnt too big. I havent heard any figures, but I have to imagine that he is going to go for around $10M per. And if thats the case and we DO sign him, it is going to upset me that we didnt make a serious run at Josh Hamilton (who is rumored to be close to a 4 year contract with the Rangers). To me, it would have been a no brainer to sign Hamilton instead of Pagan & Swisher.

Hamilton/Blanco/Pence >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Swisher/Pagan/Pence (and this is not even close IMO).

Why would Josh Hamilton want to play here? So he can relapse again after he smells the dank coming from the bleachers?

Exactly what I was saying earlier. I absolutely LOVE having Scutaro back for 2013. Its 2014 and 2015 that I really dont care for.

Keeping this team together is a lot better than it was in 2010. We had amazing pitching, but caught lightning in a bottle, with Uribe, Renteria, Ross, Huff. Pagan and Scutaro are more valuable pieces then the 2010 guys. Sure they gave an extra year too many to those guys, but they fit with this team and ballpark and you have to get them.

Pagan will have 2 decent years, one mediocre and one DFA'd.

Scutaro seems like he's a young 37. Will he bat .300 next year? Probably not, but won't be striking out and is great in the number 2 hole.

The money is fine, it's essentially the money Huff got that just came off, so that's a wash.

My concern is future development. Having Scutaro for 3 is fine if he's healthy and contributes w/o harming the development of a younger core.

Hope Bochy gets a lot of rest before the season because he's probably going to have 130 different line ups. That's fine if it keeps people fresh and gives the younger players a chance to have meaningful at bats. Cuz once our pitching isn't like it once was (sad to think), we definately need young hitters.

I would be totally fine with a massive contract restructuring and bringing Barry Zito back beyond his current contract. Granted, he would have to agree to a $3-4M a year contract, but we should at least offer it. He's the best #5 pitcher in baseball by a very wide margin IMO.
post #200 of 9786
Cant see a another team not offering him more. Like the Angels for the same reasons you said. Especially if Timmy is gone.

Andres Torres is back with Giants on 1 Year Deal
post #210 of 9786
Gregor Blanco's splits last year:

vs. Left .248 .333 .361 .694
vs. Right .242 .332 .335 .667

For Career:

vs. Left .229 .325 .307
vs. Right .262 .358 .340 .698

Andres Torres's splits last year:

vs. Left .286 .382 .381
vs. Right .194 .291 .308

For Career:

vs. Left .258 .340 .403
vs. Right .233 .311 .382

So Torres is going to face the lefties and Blanco with face the righties. I guess.

Just raise the prices of the damn Panda hats and sign Swisher. But according to the Giants they are "tapped out."
