Giants Sign Boof Bonser

We'll keep track of the day's minor moves right here…

  • The Giants signed right-hander Boof Bonser to a minor league deal, his agency, Reynolds Sports, announced on Twitter. Bonser has a 5.18 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 416 2/3 career innings and hasn't pitched at the Major League level since 2010. Bonser underwent Tommy John surgery early in the 2011 season and likely won't be ready to pitch for San Francisco until midway through the 2012 campaign. The Giants selected Bonser, now 30, with the 21st overall pick of the 2000 draft.

Sabean’s thought process: I signed ex-Giant scrub pitcher Vogelsong and he turned into an All-Star. I’ll sign ex-Giant Boof Bonser and POOF BOOF…All-Star!

Explains the Brian Burres move, too.

This is Sabean still trying to make that 3-pitchers-for-Pierzynski trade not seem so bad.

If you look back in Giants history, you will see a lot of players that the Giants traded away, only to re-acquire them years later. Seller’s remorse?

He actually had his name legally changed to Boof (his real name is John Paul).

Because ya know, SEEL is freakin genius. Don’t forget the cleverness of Ekans(snakE) and Kakuna

The old games’ Pokemon were just as unoriginal as the new ones. Readjust your nostalgia goggles

There names may not have been clever but at least they made sense. I’m pretty sure a candle is one of the pokemon in the newest generation…. Who thought that was a good idea?
