I don't disagree in the contrast of value in the two players. I just doubt the deal would happen. I doubt that either team would want to make the deal. I only said they must have meant Corriea in jest, because both names start with a C, and they could not have possibly meant that Crede for Cain is a reasonable deal. That is probably the most rediculous suggestion or speculation I have seen in any form of media ever.

Would it be worse than DeLino for Pedro?



Crede for Cain would certainly be worse that DeLino for Pedro, considering DeShields was not injured and/or terrible!

The pitcher in the deal isn't really of consequence to me. Whether it's Cain, Corriea, Lowry, Sanchez, Hennessey or even some feller from A Ball. I'm pretty sure Chicago would jump at any deal involving a young man who throws the baseball pretty good. And that makes me uneasy.

Cain for Crede?


To me I just hope that Sabean is smart enough that if he's going to trade a young pitcher like Lowry or Correia for a guy coming off major back surgery and only has one year left on his contract, that Sabean would insist on the Giants getting a young pitching prospect back for the future. Unfortunately it looks like the Sox farm system is really shallow since Williams make all these off season trades. However, if the Giants sent Lowry (or Correia) to the Sox for Crede, I'd be happy if the Giants also got Poreda (LHP out of USF) or Egbert (RHP) in the deal. Otherwise, it would just be the Giants overpaying once again and Sabean can't afford to do that with the limited talent that the organization has at the higher levels.

So bring on Crede, but only in the "right" deal for the Giants.

Just sayin'

Considering that the Giants had a Rios deal on the table, which most around baseball felt was a steal for Toronto, how could anyone being paid to write about baseball, suggest a trade like Crede for Cain.

Maybe Sabean is stupid, but I don't think he's stupid enough to turn down a bad deal in favor of a catastrophic one.

Cain for Crede?


There's no reason at all to be throwing millions of $$$ or trading decent prospects for a one- or two-year rental at third (THIS year). They absolutely shouldn't be doing BOTH!

At the worst, Aurilia could play third. They could also play Frandsen there (since 3B was his spot in college, were his defense was considered strong). Heck, they could even call up McClain or Leone.

If the Giants can't find somebody young with upside, they should just pass and keep what they have until they can trade for something better in July or Dec. (Personally, I'd rather the Giants took a shot with McPherson - but only if the contract were reasonable.)

Do not suggest trading for somebody for only two years (unless the Giants dump a crappy contract)

Looks like Rotoworld fixed [sign in to see URL] god.

The Mercury News reports that the Giants will monitor Joe Crede this spring, and if healthy, there's a "good chance" they could acquire him for a pitcher.
Crede is about as good as the Giants can hope to do at third base, though they're likely finishing in last place in 2008 whether they get him or take a chance on someone like Dallas McPherson. Morgan Ensberg would also be a nice alternative. If they trade for Crede, the deal could involve Noah Lowry or maybe Jonathan Sanchez. The White Sox no longer have much need for bullpen help.
