    I doubt that Sabean wants Guillen at all. If he really wanted him, he would had gotten him. Plus he would have to go through the AL before he got to us.

    I see us getting another arm for the BP or a pinch hitter at most.

    No, I don't think we will get another bat. We are going to stay put. Has Sabean released anything in the press regarding his moves?

    He said something about Bowker and Martinez not being very good, that's about it.

    I dont think we will get a good bat just cuz dunn will be blocked from us getting him and bautista wont make it to us since hes in the al and we would be the 28th team to get a crack at him. Guillen maybe but i hope not.

    In one statement he said that Martinez and Bowker were not that good.

    Then later on said that he had no leverage at all when trading for RP.

    It's like he saw what people were saying and thought he needed to cover his ***.

    So he hasn't said anything as to why no offense was added?

    As the Deadline approached, it became apparent that the Giants wouldn't acquire an experienced hitter to bolster their lineup. Teams with that commodity insisted on left-handers Jonathan Sanchez or Madison Bumgarner, whom the Giants refused to deal.

    "It was always the same mantra on the other side of the ball, where it had to be Sanchez or Bumgarner," said Giants general manager Brian Sabean, who noted that he and his assistants discussed in excess of 50 players with more than 20 teams. "We just couldn't cover the loss of one of these pitchers."

    So what is it about bowker that makes you all think hes so great? is it his great batting average he had with us when he got called up? no it was probably the fact that he was hitting so many bombs for us, right? Or is it just because in reality he has killer minor league stats off minor league pitchers!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! what has he EVER proven besides being a good minor league player? he hasnt showed up in the bigs. i dont care how many chances we gave him, the ones we did he didnt show up. he played a lot in 08

    He's never gotten a chance to prove anything since he revamped his approach. When a player wins Minor League player of the year he deserves more than 80 PA off the bench.

    Whatever, this topic is so old.

    He never got a chance besides on 08 during his rookie season on one of the worst offensive teams of all time.
