News on the street is the Giants have signed Juan Uribe to a minor league contract. Uribe will
make $1 million if he makes the Giants team. The Giants should have just signed Rich Aurilia who really wants to come back to San Francisco. Uribe can play 2nd, 3rd and shortstop. He hit .247 with 7 home runs for the White Sox in 110 games. This doesn’t mean the Giants will stop concidering Joe Crede as their 3rd base options. Just means it’s more than likely Richie will not be back to the Giants. I can only see the Giants making this move to save like 3 million to use that money elsewhere. Maybe Manny?

Then 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….
name them both and for different reasons. I think Pablo Sandoval will have a very nice season with the bat. He hit .345, 3 Home Runs and 24 RBI’s in just 41 games. I believe that was just a sample of what he can do with a bat in his hands. He does hit for AVG, but I’m hoping he gets a little more pop in his bat. He will probably be batting 3rd and I’m sure he will keep his AVG up and RBI’s will also come easy for him with Renteria on base a lot in front of him.
I also think Barry Zito will have a breakout year. I know I’m sure a lot of you guys think that’s a type error. No it’s not! I do believe he will have a breakout year. This year he’s not going to be the main guy that everyone is looking at cause of his big contract. They have Tim Lincecum coming back as the ace and Cy Young award winner. Then you add Randy Johnson with Matt Cain and Jonathan Sanchez. Zito will fall back to like the 3rd or 4th spot in the starting rotation. Which can only help him. He will not be going up against another teams ace. He can only get better at the bottom of the rotation.
