Re: Okay mules...thoughts?


I am not going to let this thread go unanswered.


Stretch deserves far better than that.

So, on a night after another Vogelstrong win, and an ELI 3 rbi game, I still say make the moves.
And this one is for all the Mules:

Re:


Trade for some bats but don't give up Wheeler or a current starter. Not an easy task.

Re: Okay mules...thoughts?


SF has more than one offensive hole, so as long as they're hanging so close to the top, I'd keep putting off the day of the "big" acquisition until we're comfortable we know exactly which positions have been least effectively fixed by promotions and/or current duct tape and baling wire fixes.

SF is probably already following that plan, and I sort of hope they stay the course as long as they can (the trading deadline is barely more than a month away).

Re: Okay mules...thoughts?



From this AM's Chronicle: "The Giants have swept four three-game series this season without scoring more than 10 runs in any of them."

Ram, jdb and stretch, remember the mid-1960s when we were kids and we envied the no-hit, all-pitch Dodgers who kept just barely beating out the Giants to go to the World Series?

We've become them.

But those Dodgers weren't playing in 2011 with interleague games and WS games played with DHs in AL ballparks. This team probably would have been swept had this past series been in Cleveland, because the Indians would have added their best hitter as a DH and SF would have added a guy who isn't much of an upgrade over MadBum (except for the ability to recognize the squeeze sign). Think of the series at Oakland and you've probably got a preview of the upcoming series at Detroit.

I think they could use three bats but they have to get one. The issue becomes which one to get (middle inf, C) and what they give up.

But in answer to stretch's original question, sure, I think they can make postseason and take their chances on another run despite the two losses (FSanchez, BPosey) we all thought would bury them if they happened.

[Of course, if Zito gets clobbered in his first start back and a hitless SF team gets swept in Chicago, there will be a very different vibe around here as they head to Motown. It's a big upcoming week for perceptions.]

Some of you might recall that Stretch initiated a similar thread about a year ago.

Is it too much to ask for a similar conclusion some 4 or so months hence?

Re:


Stretch, I'm gonna tell [sign in to see URL] am not above trading for some pieces that makes sense, not just for this year but for years to come. What I don't want to see is an Accardo for Shea [sign in to see URL] we trade a young up and comer for a never was. These have been the kind of knee-jerk reaction trades that Sabean has been known for over the last few years (except last season) which is why I bring it up. But honestly, I would love to see them ride this baby out. Belt will be off the DL soon, we have Crawford that we are currently taking for a test drive, we signed Hall off the scrap heap and is starting to get more and more playing time, and Panda is starting to turn singles into doubles as he gets used to being back into the lineup. I think we have enough pitching to finish up the division by mid August with what we have right now. If there is a trade out there that makes sense and keeps our pitching intact, we should definitely look into it though.

Doyle, I LOVE your 60's Dodgers [sign in to see URL] is spot [sign in to see URL] we proved it in the playoffs last year, mowing down vaunted offenses in Texas and Philly. I don't think there is a reason to truly panic because our core nucleus of players are young and talented. Yes we need a bat, but at what expense?

How nails would it be to see Giants mgmt nut up and sign Reyes at the end of the season to be our spark plug at the top of the order as a thank you for all the Giants fans putting butts in seats and buying loads of WS merchandise? A guy could dream....
