The Giants are currently carrying two weak-hitting backup infielders on their 25-man roster in Ryan Theriot and Joaquín Arias. It’s hard to see the utility of having two utility infielders at once.
Xavier Nady, San Francisco’s only backup outfielder, has not produced acceptable numbers for a player at his position since 2008
I missed all the articles where the giants said they would not put him on the roster... Which I assume must have been written.
Yeah, they have been and some have been posted here, but it hasn't exactly become a cause celebre. I'm really shocked this isn't a bigger story. It's pretty outrageous.
Well, but SF could have started getting him back into shape weeks ago. That's a self-made problem.
He hasn't played professional baseball in 2+ months, so inserting him during the playoffs doesn't seem like a plan that is likely to succeed. I think I'd rather take Ryan Theriot on my roster given the circumstances.
He's worse than overweight out of shape Melky.
I think the Giants are mad at Melky for the coverup. After all, there was very little press about Mota who served a 100 game suspension this year.
MLB investigators believed (or confirmed?) Mota's story that he tested positive because he took his kid's cough syrup without realizing it would trigger a positive test.
Melky wouldn't be eligible until the WS so, for now, the Giants are giving it their darnedest.
Really? They've been a pretty good team for three or four seasons now. They won the World Series just two years ago, remember?
