Trade Crick to the Cardinals

Nah I don't want to give you the nice gift that Ned Colleti and the Dodgers gave us when they 'poached' Juan Uribe from us after the Giants won the World Series in 2010. As a result of the Dodgers signing Juan Uribe, the Giants got a 1st round sandwich pick and with that pick the Giants selected Kyle Crick.

Out of all of our pitching prospects I want Kyle Crick to succeed and reach his potential in a Giants uniform more than any other Giants pitching prospect.

I'd say the odds are pretty high no one gets into the HOF today. Will be interesting to see what happens.

I agree, although the east media is making a big push for Piazza.

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 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.

really like Morse, but he's not 'elite'

But he's way more "elite" of a hitter than any other LF option we have. So "elite" is a relevant term for a power/production starved team like ours.

yes but just so you can upgrade from good to very good doesn't mean you're gonna pay an elite price in terms of prospects, especially if other teams will drive up his price. He somewhat has to "want" to play in SF, meaning agreeing to an extension, then I'd be ok with paying a bit more

Agreed...unfortunately/fortunately, we don't have elite prospects (not even one) to trade away for him anyway.

lol Mark Kreidler went Biggio and that was it.
Purdy, Killion, and Mr. Amy G. all left Bonds off their ballot...

Its bad enough when out-of-market writers screw Bonds over, but the local writers who witnessed how great he was up close, on a daily basis all those years? Pure idiocy.

Same to the ones who voted for Matt Morris. A couple guys voted for ONLY Morris. "Honorary" voters. What a total mockery of the process.

Amy G. has a say in who's voted into the HoF??
