Giants Fans Still Looking For Presents

Christmas has come and gone, and Giants fans were left with nothing under their Christmas Trees. Sabean has said the Giants will be taking it slow this offseason. We didn't know he meant at a turtles pace. There has been a lot of rumors floating around. We have been hearing about Dan Uggla getting traded to the Giants. Free agent names that have been linked to the Giants are Jason Bay (not likely) Adrian Beltre, Miguel Tejada, Jermaine Dye and Mark DeRosa.

The Hot-Stove is starting to boil for the Giants today. Jon Heyman, Buster Olney and Ken Rosenthal have all tweeted today about the Giants closing in on DeRosa. I know a lot of Giants fans don't think a DeRosa signing is a sexy move, but at least it's a move. The Giants have a lot of offensive holes that need to be filled, and at least this is a move in the right direction. Let's just hope Sabean isn't done.

You can pencil DeRosa in as the third baseman for now. Sabean should still look to add another bat. With Beltre, Tejada and Uggla linked to the Giants. This DeRosa signing can be the starting point of many moves to come. The good thing about DeRosa is if we do get another infielder via trade or signing a free agent. He can move to left field.

Christmas has come and gone, but let's hope we still get some gifts here shortly to open. You can check out my take on SF Giants rumors at sfgiantsbaseball.net.

  1. Welcome King of Cali to the Giants mix ,I agree this signing isn't sexy and it even reminds me of the Rich Aurilla signing a few years ago.I also agree that he is a good complement player but now we need a good outfielding hitter Nady and Dye can get it done but I really like Beltre if his price comes down to play 3rd then moving De Rosa to left ,this signing gives us a minimal risk on a 2 year deal and versatility to move around our defense so at least it is a start in the right direction rather than doing nothing.

  2. Thank you for the comment! I'm glad DeRosa can play multiple postions. Thats what makes him a good pick up. He's going to help, but he's not the big bat. I'm sure Sabean has another move or two up his sleeve. I'm hoping we stay away from Dye. I'm good with Nady or brining Tejada or Beltre to play third. Check out SF Giants Rumors. Beltre is still an option for the Giants.
