    Agreed. How about Justin Upton or Jay Bruce?

    I'd be all for it though Upton would have to sign an extension. Not another Beltran scenario

    On a brighter note, here’s another thing I heard all week: The Giants think Ty Blach is very underrated on prospect lists. The 24-year-old left-hander has had two good seasons since getting drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 draft, posting a 3.02 ERA over 47 appearances. Blach has pulled away from some of the other pitching prospects in that vaunted 2013 San Jose Giants class, and there are people in the front office who believe he can contribute to the back end of the rotation at some point next season.

    I heard Sabean talk about him on KNBR in November and how he could very well be in the mix by the end of next season. It would be awesome to have another home grown pitcher in our rotation.

    I would like to get a look at Blach & Blackburn at some point next season. Would be nice to have an in-house option for #5 starter going in to 2016. Hopefully Stratton can get his act together too.

    And hopefully Crick gets his walk issues under control.

    I hope more Giants beat writers talk up our prospects so we can trade some.

    Giants have outrighted Villalona off the 40-man to make a spot for Romo.

    24, and the years away from baseball because of all his fun legal stuff clearly weren't helpful.

    I think the time to do that was last off season.

    But after 3 straight years of poor control, how good could the return be.

    I think the time to reply was two months ago. I do love your hindsight though.
