Posted Sunday November 17, 2013, About: Marlins interested in third baseman Juan Uribe
NO ONE in their right mind wants to go to this franchise as long as the owner remains in place. Period. And they will retire before playing for that meddling pisspot.
Posted Monday November 04, 2013, About: MLB's biggest legitimate trade chip
Its very easy. Jeffrey Loria is a hambone away from destroying what's left of his franchise. If ANY team offered, say, $35-$40 million and one of its everyday players for Stanton............deal done.
You have to understand who you are dealing with in Miami, and Loria has a history of just caring about making money. Open the checkbooks, and Stanton is yours.
Posted Tuesday January 01, 2013, About: The best rotation in the majors
2 out of the last 3 World Series would seem to differ with this analysis. The standard for excellence today, in terms of staff excellence, is the SF Giants, and every team out there is trying to duplicate their success.
And there's more in their minor-league system.
Posted Wednesday December 12, 2012, About: Yankees older ... but better?
They ought to change the Yankees name to the Nebuchadnezzars, the Henny Youngmans, the AARP-Boys, the AnythingOldandGrumpies, the YesterdayNewses.............
Posted Monday August 27, 2012, About: Dodgers becoming MLB's most hated team?
Just not with the Dodgers and Red Sox, but who is really benefitting by all these 7 year contracts? Players? Owners? Fans? Agents? Can anyone out there name one of these long term contracts that has benefitted both ownership and player alike? Anyone? Hello, I'm looking for an answer........
Posted Monday August 06, 2012, About: Soriano a Cub in '13 after nixing Giants deal?
What.......no Soriano? Just add everybody's Johnny-Bag-A-Donuts Carlos Lee to the mix, and the Giants could have matching buddhas at the corners in SF. Rag arm Soriano in left, Rag arm Zito on the mound, Hot Plate Carlos at first....................and these all could have happened on Sabean's watch. And this team is still in first place despite a GM, despite his good signings now and then, all of sudden turns into the Lindsay Lohan of GM's...........just a matter of time before something ugly happens.
Posted Friday July 20, 2012, About: Braves have Public Enemy No. 1
Well, looks like a bunch of descendants of Thomas Wolfe are getting worked up over nothing. Laughable that a group of mouthbreathers can say anything worthy at all
Posted Wednesday June 13, 2012, About: Giants ponder drastic measures for Linceum
Worried about hurting the kid's self-confidence? Maybe the Giants should give Tim one of those "compete" trophies they give kids in little league, and tell him they love him no matter what. The Giants are full of "nice" guys, truth in fact, they're soft. Soft, soft, soft like Grandma's tummy, and Lincecum falls right into that mold.
Posted Tuesday April 03, 2012, About: Struggling Zito left behind in Arizona
Maybe the state of Arizona can hold Zito as an suspected illegal alien for about 6 months. That would be about right for about 99% of Giants fans.
Posted Monday March 26, 2012, About: Zito sends concern coursing through Bochy
The Giants will do what they did last year, come up with some shadowy excuse to put him on the 60 day DL, and ship him off to Fresno, their AAA affiliate. But don't worry, there are plenty of nice malls in Fresno and an Indian Casino close by in case he gets bored living in the Central Valley. It is interesting from a management perspective because they are going to have to pay him whether or not he's productive as a major league pitcher. Watch out for the Giants once they get rid of him and Aubrey Huff. They got rid of Rowand last year, then they won't have any excuses left for the p.r. department to make once the Kavorka leaves town.
Posted Monday January 09, 2012, About: Indians in market for left-handed bat
Rumor has it that the Indians and Giants are talking about taking Aubrey Huff off the Giants hands with SF paying $9m of his salary for 2012.
Posted Thursday December 01, 2011, About: Cross big bat off the list, Giants fans
Have any of you chuckleheads been around for Sabean's free agency signings? This is like manna from heaven. Player development, yes, the Giants are starting to develop players that can play at the major league level. But if this team needs to find help with this GM via free agency, its never going to happen. Never.
Posted Friday November 04, 2011, About: Time to consider trading Lincecum is now
You have to understand that within the confines of the Bay Area, Brian Sabean GM of the Giants, is not well loved, even after being a part of a World Series winner. If he were to trade Lincecum, he'd have to hire security guards to be around him 24 hours a day to avoid a real ugly incident. Know this Boston and Yankee fans, it would take a combination of Granderson AND Cano, or, Ellsbury AND Pedroia to pry Lincecum away from the Giants. Sabean might be slow but he's not going to trade Lincecum away for any combination of prospects in either the Yankees or Red Sox farm systems.
Posted Monday October 24, 2011, About: Giants might take a swing at Sizemore
Another broken down 30 something to add to their roster. Bring him on, and sign Beltran also.
When both are on the DL next year, its the only chance that Sabean can hang himself. If Freddy Sanchez reinjures himself, Panda gains 30 pounds over the course of a season, Cain and Lincecum have ERA's under 2.00 and each only win 9 games, maybe management can make the necessary changes needed for this franchise to get back on track.
Posted Sunday October 23, 2011, About: Red Sox covet Blue Jays manager
Hey, Felipe Alou is only 108 years old! Just think how much beer the 3 Musketeers could drink in the dugout is Felipe was managing.
Posted Thursday October 13, 2011, About: Giants should be eyeing Rollins
Just what the Giants need....another 32 year old ballplayer on the downside of his career. If he'll take 2 year contract with a club option for a 3rd year, maybe. Giants management is not going to offer anyone, and I mean ANYONE any 5,6,7 year deal in the near future. Can you say Zito? Can you say Rowand? And the front office has a terrible record with free agents, just look it up.
Posted Wednesday October 12, 2011, About: Rollins wants a five-year deal to stay
These 5,6,7 year deals don't work, period. Just ask the Giants (Zito), Red Sox (Crawford), Yankees (Rodriguez) how they feel now that they've inked these contracts. I'm sure there's more out there, but when the agent comes flying with these kinds of offers, GM's ought to run for cover, or allow the fanbase to burn them at the stake when they make a bonehead move that basically cripples a franchise.
Posted Friday September 30, 2011, About: Indians should cut ties with Sizemore
Gee, if he's 34 or over, and on the downside of his career, injury-prone to boot, seems like it's time to call Brian Sabean of the SF Giants, to see if he can get an overpaid, 4-5 year contract.
Posted Sunday September 25, 2011, About: Mariners face tough decision on Ichiro's future
Hey, trade him to the Giants! He's perfect for them, he's old, doesn't hit for power, on the downside of his career, and Brian Sabean would probably extend his contract for another two years!
Perfect for the Giants!
Posted Tuesday September 20, 2011, About: Kershaw inviting Koufax comparisons ... again
Kemp, Kershaw will look good in a Giants uni really soon. Just keep the McCourt circus in town for a while longer and no one is going to want to play for this franchise.
Posted Monday September 19, 2011, About: Beltran wants Reyes in Giants lineup
Giants are not going to offer ANYONE a contract longer than 3 years with a club option for a fourth. Period. Idiots that sign players for 5, 6 or 7 years are going to have to reside East of the Mississippi. And as long as BASEBALL is not subject to anti-trust exemptions, NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE has any real idea how much money any team actually makes in a season. My personal feeling is that they are printing money, printing money in a way that makes Vegas jealous.
