Give up Gary Brown - take on 60% of the rest of the contract, 10 Mill a year for a guy who has the potential to hit 20 HRs and Steal 20 Bases from a middle infield position....

all just speculative / fun of course.

Andrus would be very interesting, doe....

Giants top 20 prospects 2013
1) Kyle Crick, RHP, Grade B+: There are a few control issues to address, but I'm a big fan of his stuff, size, fresh arm, and San Francisco's track record of developing similar prospects.

2) Chris Stratton, RHP, Grade B+: He was one of my favorite college pitchers from the 2012 draft. I felt he was a real steal at 20th overall.

3) Clayton Blackburn, RHP, Grade B+: I don't understand the reluctance among prospect watchers to give this guy his due. Sure, he's physically mature and not projectable. But he already has good stuff, his command is outstanding, and he dominated Low-A one year out of high school.

4) Gary Brown, OF, Grade B: Borderline B-. For a guy who runs as well as he does, he sure gets caught stealing a lot. I think he's a better hitter than he showed last year, but not as good as his Cal League-inflated stats in '11. Glove and legs will get him to the majors even if his bat disappoints, perhaps long enough for him to make the necessary adjustments to stay in the lineup.

5) Joe Panik, SS, Grade B-: He wasn't terrific at San Jose and the grade drops one notch from last year's B, but I still like his instincts, makeup, contact skills, and chances to adapt at higher levels.

6) Heath Hembree, RHP, Grade B-: Command and injury issues hampered him in Triple-A, but he looked back to normal in the Arizona Fall League. Expect he can help in the bullpen in '13.

7) Mike Kickham, LHP, Grade B-: I've liked him since he was in college, nice power lefty arm. Command still needs some work, but I trust the Giants to develop him more than most teams.

Decent pitching prospects but the Giants hitting prospects are possibly the worst in baseball. This team needs to draft corner outfielders and more corner outfielders. It really is sad that the Giants do not have 1 everyday prospect in the organization that is a sure thing at the major league level.

The Giants other than resigning their own players going to sign anyone this off season?

Probably not. Its the Sabean way (not necessarily a bad thing nowadays).

Considering the biggest f/a name they signed last year was Ryan Theriot, and it turned into a title, i wouldnt be surprised if they sat on their hands again.

I always wait for Baseball America's list. imo its the most credible. Unfortunately they wont release the Giants top 10 until Jan. 30th

Jonny Gomes or Scott Hairston perhaps? I would love to get a LF with punch to platoon with Blanco and give us a RH hitter offf the bench. However, I'm not sure the Giants will have any money to spend if the resign Pagan and Scutaro.

This was their list last year. Not all that credible to me. Adrianza is a complete bust and to have him in the top 10 and ahead of Sanchez was laughable. Also, anyone who has seen Surkamp knows this kid is not anything better than a #5 starter at BEST.


1)Gary Brown, OF
2.Tommy Joseph, 1B/C
3.Heath Hembree, RHP
4.Joe Panik, SS
5.Francisco Peguero, OF
6.Andrew Susac, C
7.Eric Surkamp, LHP
8.Kyle Crick, RHP
9.Ehire Adrianza, SS
10.Hector Sanchez, C
