If you were a GM what realistic moves would you make for your team this off-season?

Its funny cause I wrote this topic down and was going to post a blog about it.
Thumbnail image for TimLincecum-1.jpgThen I actually found another blog with something similar. It was about the Giants and what they would do if they were the GM. I do give the guy credit because he did put a lot of time and thought into it, but it just wasn’t realistic. What realistic moves would you make with your team. Trades, free agent signings or whatever you can think of. You can’t change any of the teams your team has already made this off-season. Starting today….
 
If I was Brian Sabean I would trade some pitching for a bat. I would trade Jonathan Sanchez to the Florida Marlins for Jorge Cantu. He hit .277 with 29 home runs and 95 RBI’s. That would be the corner infielder they were looking for. He can play 3rd base and then Pablo Sandoval can play first base.
 
Then I would make a hard push for Manny Ramirez. He would be another great bat that would be in the middle of the lineup. Then the Giants would be the favorite in the NL West. They would have a very decent lineup with a great starting rotation.
 
If by any chance the Giants are out of it by trading deadline. Then I would trade Bengie Molina since he’s in his last year of his contact. No need to re-sign him with Buster Posey ready to come up by the end of the season. Posey was drafted by the Giants with the 5th overall pick in the 2008 draft. Randy Winn would like to stay a Giant. He’s been a good Giant too. I would re-sign him if he doesn’t demand a lot of money. If he’s not signed before the trading deadline. I would also trade him as well. To get some minor league player or players. No sense in letting him walk at the end of the season and get nothing in return.

Manny a Giant???

The word on Manny Ramirez right now is that him and Scott Boras are considering an offer
Manny.jpgfrom the Giants. The offer is 3 years and a club option for the 4th year. I have not been able to find out how much per year.

 

Manny make perfect sense for the Giants. They will get their number 4 hitter that they have been looking for. This is a guy that would be able to change the outlook of game by himself. With the good starting pitching that the Giants have. They should pay the money for Manny Ramirez. Like they said on MLB Network. “Manny is a division changer. With the pitching and Manny the Giants will be the favorites in the NL West.

 

The outfield is already set with Aaron Rowand, Randy Winn and Fred Lewis. Fred Lewis will move to the bench and Manny will be in Left Field. Fred Lewis would still be getting a lot of playing time. He can play all 3 outfield positions. He can also come in for defense in the late innings. Now it’s time to play the waiting game and see what Manny decides to do. I’m sure he will want to go back to the Dodgers. AT&T park is not a hitter friendly park.
