If Burrell plays first base, where oh where would Sabean be comfortable seeing Posey play?

Burrell shouldn’t be playing all too often for that to matter. He’ll spell Posey (if Posey plays 1st) every now and again to keep him fresh.

I was just joking about the ridiculousness of not playing Posey at catcher.

Don’t put it past Botchy to stick Burrell in the OF as a starter, since he is a veteran and a “gamer”.

botchy is dumb enough to put burrell on the field. and when he does you’ll hopefully see molina come off the bench. but who knows what botchy and sabean are thinking.

Nationals need a RF? How about Jeff Francoeur or Gary Matthews Jr?

they need one who doesn’t suck, so that leaves frenchy and matthews out.

i think if burrell hits like he’s doing here in fresno you’ll see molina coming off the bench, posey behind the dish, burrell in left, and huff at 1st. giants have the fewest errors in the national league but that will change.

That’s just it. He WON’T hit like he has in Fresno. This is a career .253 hitter we’re talking about who has never hit higher than .282 in 11 seasons. Burrell is being called up to do what young John Bowker couldn’t: pinch hit. Whether or not this experiment works, only time will tell. My money’s on “NOT.” At the end of the day, this was just another Brian Sabean move to bring in an aging veteran.

simmer down there guy. i said if, key word IF, he hit like he is in fresno you would see molina come off the bench.

Dammit that really sucks about Veal. I was hoping that he would be able to get back into being a starter again after spending all of last year in the bullpen. Hopefully he can rebound next year and come up to the majors at some point in the year.
