Re: benitez mentioned again


IMO, it's better not to trade Benitez right now.

The Giants are going to have to cover most of his salary and get not much in return (There are guys in San Jose I'd rather have in the bullpen than (Mitre or Messenger, blech; Gregg is better, but still more of a AAAA guy). Better to gamble that he starts the season strong and has actual trade value at the deadline.

Benitez may sulk, but to facking bad. Giving players away because they don't want to be here is a luxury the Giants can no longer afford.

I [sign in to see URL] keep the big [sign in to see URL] hope his value increases at the deadline (potential playoff team whose closer may be out for the remainder of the season)...or simply let him walk at the end of the year. Gregg is the best of the three [sign in to see URL] he's no better than the guys we have penciled [sign in to see URL]

Re: benitez mentioned again


I think we're all missing the big issue with 'mandos trade value next summer. If he's has a great first half, it will probably mean the Giants will be within 5 games or so of the division lead. therefore, he won't be traded.

Sabean hasn't learned anything and is going to look to buy if the Giants are close in June, rather than trading away vets for prospects to real contenders. If somehow the Giants could be 15 games out AND have Benitez putting up good save numbers, it could happen. I'm just not that optimistic.
