I can make it to Richmond in two hours, I should catch a game next year.

where do you live? I'm East Coast too, but Richmond is about 2 hours from MD

Northern Virginia bro. Just south of DC. Hit me up

Richmond loves their flying squirrels, but the city doesn't want to give them a new stadium oddly enough. Diamond stadium is 28 years old.

Probably because Richmond is a dump. The only reason I would go there is the flying squirrels

yeah same, would love to catch a game next year

SAN DIEGO – Heath Hembree headlines a list of eight players who will join the Giants on Tuesday following the regular-season finale for Triple-A Fresno.

In addition to Hembree, talented defensive shortstop Ehire Adrianza and power-hitting catcher Johnny Monell will be on a big league roster for the first time. The club also will recall infielder Nick Noonan, outfielder Francisco Peguero, outfielder Juan Perez, right-hander George Kontos and right-hander Jake Dunning.



Again, no Gary Brown

Brown really didnt play well enough to deserve a call up. I know we all want to see him but I understand why he didnt.

Ya, but do you ever wonder if he can pull a Bryce Harper. Harper was less than impressive in the minors, the tore it up. Obviously he isn't Harper, but maybe he needs the rush of the bigs to peak. Its just frustrating reading and hearing about this kid for years with nothing to show for it. We could have traded him for something good many times. Now that we fail to call him up in sept. when we suck, that says a lot. If I were another team, I wouldn't give up anything good for him now.

Brown has very little trade value now. Giants are better off keeping him and hoping the light bulb somehow goes off. At this point he is simply a huge bust.

I agree.


Hembree
Dunning


But give Brown a shot. Francisco has already been up here at least twice.
Harper is four years younger. It's understandable for an 18 year old to struggle in the Eastern league.
Garry Brown may be out of baseball in a few years if he doesnt turn things around. These stats are awful:

.231 Batting average
.286 OBP for a leadoff hitter
135 Ks and just 33 walks
just 17 out of 28 in steal attempts

These are not stats for someone ready to be called up to the majors.

This makes me has a sad, john.

I was glad the G's kept Brown over Wheeler. Wow, I was wrong.

I think the Giants realized that Brown wouldnt be anything special when they went out and gave Pagan a 4 year/40 million dollar deal. They never would have done that if they had thought Brown would be good enough to be their everyday CF.

Which is really hard to comprehend especially when you see how much pure talent Brown has. It's got to be a mental thing, because Brown actually put up really good numbers last year in Richmond (a much more difficult place to hit than Fresno) but he's taken a nosedive this year for some crazy reason.

The guy I think who will really impress over the next month is Ehire Adrianza. His range at SS is pretty spectacular and he really uses his plus speed to his advantage at the plate, unlike his teammate Gary Brown.

If he does well in the next month and next year's spring training, do you think he could be the utility man in the IF?

Defensively I think he can be a strong utility guy right now, especially at SS/2nd (much better than Abreu, IMO), just not sure about 3rd. I also think he'd be a valuable pinch-runner, something we pretty much did without most of this year. But yah, it's all going to come down to how well he hits...if he can show enough at the plate (which I think he will, given his short stroke and good speed) I think he'll be a strong possibility for next year.
