    i’m up for a lewis/ojeda swap. i just don’t want to see lewis become the next upton.

    i’m really happy to see Belisario not in the u.s. the guy was lights out last year. just one more problem the dodgers have.

      That doesn’t make any sense at all…

      And I hope he gets the situation worked out because he is a very good pitcher.

        because as a giants fan i don’t want to see him out there because he is good. get it?

    Ivan DeJesus Jr. would be a good fit for the Padres at 2B. The Padres also have a ton of relief pitchers.

    I could also see potential fits in the A’s (definitely) Maybe a swap for Pedro Figueroa?

      no way we trade him for a reliever. We have relievers coming out our @$$. Look for a bigger deal, or more likely, no deal at all. He has a very good shot to be the starting 2B next year and there is no reason to trade depth for nothing.

        Okay so bring Lindblom up and trade DeJesus Jr. to the A’s for Doolittle and Donaldson.

          A. Lindblom isnt ready. B. No one knows if Lindblom will be a closer or a starter yet…

          I dont know about the guys you said to trade DeJesus for, but unless they are good guys, there is no reason to trade DeJesus just to trade him. Like I said, DeJesus will be a big piece, IMO, as soon as next year. He was a top prospect last year and then got hurt. He is nearly 100% healed(he has been playing, but I think his speed is still affected somewhat) and will be playing in the minors this year. A good year and he is the starting 2B, or in a platoon with DeWitt if DeWitt struggles against lefties this year..

    # Ronald Belisario still hasn’t arrived to spring training due to visa issues, reports MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick. The fact that Belisario is out of options further complicates matters,

    Doesnt matter. He’ll be on the restricted list and wont use an option or be on the 40 man roster..

    Contrary to what Neyer is reporting, with the great spring that Bowker is having and considering how much Schierholtz has struggled, I’m thinking that Bowker might be the favorite to get the nod in RF on opening day. Also, Bowker is excelling at the two things that the Giants lineup is sorely lacking, power and patience at the plate. I realize that right field at AT&T Park is not the easiest of outfield positions, but I am sure that if Bowker lives up to the potential that he has been showing in AAA last year and spring this year, that is a sacrifice that Bochy would be more than willing to make.

    Why dont the Giants just do this…

    Rowand – CF
    Schierhotlz – RF
    Sandoval – 3B
    Huff – 1B
    DeRosa – 2B
    Molina – C
    Bowker – LF
    Renteria – SS

    Since F. Sanchez is hurt you can play DeRosa at 2B. Also this gives Schierholtz and Bowker starting jobs and chances to prove themselves.

      bowker is tearing it up right now. he has a good bat.

  7. At this point, I’m hoping that the Giants will take Torres and Bowker for their two reserve outfield spots. Since Velez and Torres are redundant, and Torres is better in pretty much every respect except that he swings through a lot of pitches. We could use the extra power, and that’s no secret.

    Mark,

    Regarding the Dejesus part… Instead of “says”, which implies that he has gotten confirmation from the team, you should’ve used “believes,” which would infer what it actually is: pure speculation on the part of Tony Jackson. Your take on it suggests that this rumor has been confirmed.
