DSL  Giants were idle.


  1. Now that were past the All Star break, are we going to get a mid-season re-ordering of the Top-50? John Sickles has just started his. Hasn't gotten to the Giants yet.

    1. That's a lot of work. I'll see what I can put together. Maybe a top 10 or 20?

    2. You did a bang up job on the Top 10 (up/down) July 7th, maybe extend that 10 at a time:
      UP: Hinojosa, Gomez, Garcia, and Gregorio (probably) DOWN: Slania, and Coonrod (?)
      EVEN: Stratton, Jones (?)
      And maybe cherry pick some of the more spectacular names -- Malique?

    3. No pressure. I just wondered if you were going to re-evaluate your list.

  2. To answer your question, I for one join you in rooting for a Hundley trade. He's a good backup catcher wasted here in any event.

    To up the ante, I'll root for a trade of Kontos & Gearin. I like both, but as a pair they would do well for a bullpen-starved team in contention. This morning's Doolittle/Madson trade serves as a guide. The pundits describe the A's haul as a modest return for those two relievers, but they got back (a) a ML reliever with similar ceiling (Treinen) who's having an off year and (b)the Nats' 2d and 3d round picks from 2016, both of whom show promise in the low minors.

    A deal like that would reinforce the Giants' system and open up spots for a couple of new pitchers, such as Tyler Rodgers and DJ Snelton, both of whom ought to be tested in the majors this year.

  3. It would be nice for Hundley. He's a good guy. And has helped SF in a losing cause.
    OTOH, maybe Fedex would be more interesting and bring more. Would you trade the one that returned the most, or do you want to see Fedex in SF?
