Hes only cost us about 2 million dollars per season for the last 5 years, gave us a couple All-Star seasons at 3B, won us a WS MVP, and has hit .297 overall as a Giant. Its frustrating because he could be so much better with some discipline, but theres very little to really be mad about.

What he did in the past is nice. BUT, I am still pissed at the guy for not having enough pride to get his ass in shape.

Yeah, if you make that much money, you should be expected to stay in shape. Baseball as a whole doesnt really do a great job of keeping players in better shape. Its weird that guys are allowed to get as big as a house and waddle around the bases for that much money.

I get that some guys are naturally bigger than others, like Prince Fielder, but any pro athlete being out of shape is ridiculous. The union would never allow it, but there should be specific weight clauses in contracts that void bonuses and such.

Baseball players got it made after they get passed their arbitration years.

I could not agree more.

What is going on Timmy?
It's an uphill battle already. Not sure I'd qualify Timmy at $13M for next season.

Which remaining Fresno OF would you bring up now? Brown, Peguero, or Perez? Maybe when rosters expand in 2 weeks they will do that.
It is incredible how bad the Giants are.

I think its a VERY good possibility that the Giants dont extend a qualifying offer to him. He isnt worth 13M per year thats for sure. I just dont see Timmy being able to ever be even a #3 again.
