Well it looks like it's time we revisit the Michael Morse conversations, LaRoche just signed and they're going to deal him.

While I would love to get him I just dont see Sabean pulling the trigger on it. He would have to give up top pitching prospects and that seems unlikely.

Would you give up Gary Brown, Clayton Blackburn and an extra body for Morse?

No Morse is a one year rental. If we had him under control for 3 plus seasons, it would be worth considering

Nope. Way too much to give up given his contract situation.

Negative...not for one year.

Just Clayton Blackburn and an extra body? I realize it's just a one-year rental, but you gotta give up something good to get back something good.

If you're going to make a trade like that, you got to try and sign him long term.

Agreed.

Would be risky but I might do that. WIth Crick, Statton, and Kickham, the Giants would still have 3 solid young SP prospects. Morse is only making 6.75 million in 2013. My guess is that there will be strong demand for him even though he has just one year left on his deal and will command more than what the Giants would or could give up.

I like Blackburn and think he could be argued as our best prospect along with Crick (both of them are in the mold of Matt Cain). If we were talking about someone more cost-controlled I'd be interested but I just still think it's too much.
love this team! cant wait for next season!

I doubt all 3 pitchers are going to pan out.... I think the giants could afford to give up one of them (maybe two, if your talking elite player) ....

You may want to take a chance on a player like Morse with unknown commodities. See Tim Alderson trade.

There are no combos of those 3 pitching prospects that would be able to get us an elite player. Theyre all very raw and unproven. The Giants just dont have the assets to trade for a valuable player.

Yep. You arent going to get an elite player for our prospects. Morse could be had but he isnt worth giving up two or three top guys given that he is a FA in 2014. I have to admit though, I would like him in LF this year.
