                                57       BB's     4
    *28 games

    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Moore gets an opportunity to start after he recorded a strong two-inning outing in relief last Sunday against St. Louis. Matt Cain and Jonathan Sanchez are among other Giants starters who, in previous years, benefited from brief bullpen stints.

    White Sox: Giolito has been solid in all three of his starts since being promoted to the White Sox, but he has been especially good in the last two. The right-hander has yielded one run in the past 14 innings, while striking out 14 and walking four.

    Game 2: Saturday, September 9th @ 4:10 PM


    VS.
    Jeff Samardzija......James Shields

    Code:

                                12       Losses   6         
                                4.31     ERA      5.72                  
                                1.14     WHIP     1.52                  
                                183.2    IP       91.1
                                184      K's      78
                                28       BB's     44

    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Samardzija spent the 2015 season with the White Sox, then entered free agency and signed with the Giants during the following offseason. Many believe that he’ll be more motivated than usual to face his former team.

    White Sox: The right-hander’s toughness and durability never can be questioned, considering the veteran was struck by a line drive on his right knee Monday but is not missing a start. Shields has a 17-16 career record in Interleague action.

    Game 3: Sunday, September 10th @ 11:10 AM

    Madison Bumgarner..........Carson Fulmer

                                1.05     WHIP     1.83                 
                                91.1     IP       6.0

                                17       BB's     5


    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Bumgarner owns a 9-8 record and a 3.42 ERA in 22 Interleague starts. He has never faced the White Sox.

    White Sox: Fulmer pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings in relief on Tuesday but will be making his second start. Fulmer allowed six runs on four hits over 1 1/3 innings against the Twins on Aug. 21 in his first career start.

    TRADE

    1. Second baseman Joe Panik: Everyone would hate to see him go. He plays a smooth and effective second base, and he’s a solid contact hitter. He also has four seasons left at low salary base and could fetch a bunch of prospects.

    2. Pitcher Jeff Samardzija. He is pitching well right now, all the more reason to trade him while he’s hot. Also his salary balloons to $19.8 million next year.

    3. First baseman Brandon Belt. His contract goes from $4 million to $17 million next year. If the Giants can move Samardzija and Belt, they could save some cash for a big time free agent like maybe Giancarlo Stanton?

    KEEP

    1. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval. OK, I know he’s hitting only .229 and, what, he has one hit right-handed? But the guy looks surprisingly nimble at third and he might have something left. Also, not too many teams are going to want him.

    2. First baseman/outfielder Chris Shaw: Probably the best outfield prospect. Could be a starting left fielder in 2018? It’s possible. Scouting reports say he has “genuine power.”

    3. Pitcher Ty Bloch: You got to love his attitude and he can hit. Who doesn’t love a hitting pitcher?

    Trade Belt and Panik but keep Sandoval. Sounds like a plan.

    Also, "Bloch."

    TIL: Stanton is a Free Agent even though he's under contract for a billion more years.

    Is this the year the White Sox finally trade Joe Crede to the Giants?

    He'd probably be better than Pablo.

    With the **** year we've had they should be throwing all the minor league guys out there to see what they've got. I'd rather they brought up Hwang and sent Sandoval down. Though I'm assuming coaches/management saw something in Hwang where they just didn't think he's got it. (Begs the question, why haven't they seen that with Panda??)

    I'd like to think the Giants would be smart enough to hold out for Dallas McPherson.

    It's important to slash payroll 3 years before a player can even be a FA, just in case.

    Stanton hits right handed so I don't think our 'deadball" park would effect his HR numbers... right?

    He could play at Yellowstone and it wouldn't supress his power.

    AT&T would have eaten 2 HRs this year, and those were hit 400+ feet and only die because of triples alley.

    I bet a bear chasing him around the park would affect his power :=)

    Stop the presses. After an 0-39 skid, Pablo ran into one. 1-40. Now that's a hitter!!!
    Baseball has been very very good to me!
