With 3 days Left until the trade deadline, the Giants who were need of a good bat picked up from Cleveland... Ryan Garko. The Giants traded a Single A pitcher (Scott Barnes is 12-3 with a 2.85 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 18 starts and 98.0 innings. And a top 20 prospect) to pick up Garko. This season already .285 with 11 home runs and 39 RBIs in 78 games for Cleveland, including .343 this month to raise his average 25 points. Here's a little background about him really quick, born January 2nd, 1981 in Pittsburgh, Pa. A former 3rd rounder in 2003 drafted out of Stanford, and made his MLB Debut September 18, 2005 with the Indians has had great success at the plate. Each of his 5 seasons with the Indians he's managed to have a batting average over .270, and his career batting average is .283 which is really good. His Fielding is okay, he's no gold glove winner but he's decent for the giants to have, he has played the outfield before so , if the giants want Garko and Ishikawa in on the same game, the Giants can move Garko to the outfield for a game or two. But Garko should be batting 5th after Bengie Molina, that's my opinon we'll see what the Giants have in store for him. Ryan Garko is set to arrive in San Francisco on tuesday. And as for Scoot Barnes he will initially report to the club's minor league affiliate (A) in Kinston, N.C. this week. Now for the latest and greatest on the Giants trying to acquire Freddy Sanchez, the talks between The Giants and Pirates resumed again this week, The Pirates are looking into the Giants minor league teams to see who strikes there attention, I've heard that the Pirates are interested in first baseman John Bowker, infielder Kevin Frandsen and Jesus Guzman. So we'll see what happens with that, like i said 3 more days left until the trade deadline, the Giants don't have that much time left, they need Freddy Sanchez's bat and glove. Here is Sanchez's stats so far for the first half of the season, .296 AVG, 6 HR, 34 RBI, 45 Runs, 5 SB. So come on Giants let's get this deal done.
