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

The demotion caught me by surprise, at least this early into Spring Training. I thought he'd be in the running for longer.

Re: …


I don't why he should have been in the running any longer -- the guy is terrible. He had 2 good months for Florida other than that he is a +[sign in to see URL] ERA pitcher with no above average secondary pitches.

In 40 innings for the Giants he allowed 70 base runners -- now if the Giants could trade or even DFA skinny Steve Kline -- maybe they will not lose some of their younger pitchers that actually have potential:

Zito
Cain
Misch/Sanchez -- until Lowry comes back
Lincecum
Correia

Chulk
Threets
Taschner/Cappellan
Valdez
Walker
Hennessey
Wilson

I would probably have Sanchez starting down in Fresno. When Lowry comes back -- if Threets and Cappellan are showing the ability to get left-handers out and throwing strikes, then I would send Misch down to Fresno to start.

If one of the lefty relievers is struggling, I would try and pass him through waivers and I would move Misch to the bullpen.

and only 22 punchouts, I do actually mean strikeouts. That's what happens when you have !@#$ for a breaking ball.
