  1. The Giants are sending RP Dale Graves (ML) to the Brewers for SP Drew Thorpe (A Wisconsin) Graves has been a solid swingman, and this year a true reliever for us, but he's a bit older at 29 than the core we're aiming for. Additionally we have some AAA relievers having nice seasons so probably best to give them a look. In Thorpe we see a solidly built righty with some solid pitches in his arsenal. Add to the stockpile! Thanks Cole for the easy dealin'
  2. Giants confirm! While I enjoyed what I did in TB, one mis-step I wish I had a do-over on was coloring up prospects a bit earlier (though in hindsight if I had, I may not have left for SF). This and the Majerle deal are an effort to do that and collect some cost-controlled talent to pair with Tork and the top shelf guys like Hurrell that are on the horizon. All of the small deals I've made since coming over have given us quite a stable of depth to pull from. Evans was a sliver of what we got back for Pardo, Bitsko slid over last year when we dealt OF depth last year. If all these guys hit, I'll probably take a loss on the deal but I have quite a bit of coverage in the minors. I'm a fan of Urias, have been for awhile. I was the 2nd suitor back when LA sent him to the Cubs. He should slide in pretty nicely as we turn the corner to competitiveness Thanks for the easy dealin' Jabs and good luck!
  3. Giants confirm. Gm3 and Ginn were two of my favorites from when I slid over the Giants, but our need for an impact CF to roam the OF in our spacious park is too important to pass up. His bat should pair nicely behind Tork in the lineup. Thanks Hodges!
  4. Giants confirm, we like Frost quite a bit since we got him from the Cards but with that surprise pick up of Ced and already having Mack and MacMurchie he ends up being the odd man out Johnson will be a fun one to see just how much low movement I can get away with in my park ala Camm Martin. Nice dealin with you as always Brett!
  5. Giants accept. We were going to be on the lookout for a pitcher with Velette's profile and contract in FA, so we'll send a flyer to Mitch to cross that off early. While he isn't the beast he was pre-injury I think he still works in our park and without Inoa kickin balls around behind him his BABIP might drop a bit as well Thanks Mitchie boy!
  6. The Giants send CF Ryan Boldt (AAA) and SP Hugues Vallone (AAA) to the White Sox for OF Tink Jones (DFA), SS Aurelio Rivera (AAA), Tyler Pill (ML), RF Spencer Torkelson (DL) and SP Jordan Wicks (A+ Winston Salem) Well, we're basically buying a couple prospects here, though I've always been a Tink fan. I put many an offer on him in FA but lost out. Pill fits our park pretty well honestly and hey who doesn't love a good glove IF like Rivera? Wicks is a nice bonus as he fits our profile well as a young dude. Thanks for the talks Greg!
  7. Giants confirm - Wieters was Spring Training! He's got the glove and leadership though, which has value. We'll happily take the flyer for him
  8. The Giants send SP Lucio Cruzado (DFA) to the Cardinals for 2B Jason Frost (AAA) and "SP" Christopher Cruz (A Peoria) Pretty cut and dry - Cruzado was only signed as a showcase with us for a prospect return and we get it done. Would've liked for him to be a tick healthier and I probably could've gotten a lot more but it is what it is. I'd do it again (and we all know I will). As far as the specs I'm getting back, Frost has a good chance to stick. Macmurchie hasn't shown he can hang in the bigs really and former Cardinal farmhand Mason Mack has a great eye but isn't getting actual hits. Cruz is likely ticketed as a future reliever, but I think he can be a dang good one.
  9. Giants confirm! Fullmer is a nice piece but definitely a luxury for our current state. We've still got a bit of a glut of relief arms due to the Rule 5 picks so it makes more sense to just move him now. The arms are nice to add to the stockpile, the more options the better! Thanks as always Sam!
  10. The Giants send CF Jake Mangum (AAA) to the Rays for SP Nick Bitsko (A Bowling Green) and 1B Lucas Miller (R Princeton) Didn't start the day thinking Mangum would be a guy I'd send off, but Comey inquired and it all worked out. While Mangum is a nice piece and his D will always play, we'll kick the can down the road a bit and pickup a couple personal faves of mine in the process. Thanks Comey!
  11. Giants confirm I believe quite a bit more in Paxton than Jim does for sure and I think we got a nice return in a future pen arm and a glovely SS, plus a touch of cost savings I eagerly await a Pax CGSHO in game 4 of the ALDS
  12. The Giants send SS Michael Sharp to the Twins for CF Carson Yates (R Elizabethton) Pretty straightforward, we suck and want to give playing time to MacMurchie among others so we will save some cash and let Sharp get a playoff run Thanks Rocky!
  13. The Giants send 3B Joey Moran (I'll have him in DFA) and DH Evan Weaver (AAA) to the White Sox for 2B Dominic MacMurchie (AAA) and SP Javier Rosado (A+ Winston Salem) Definitely a risky to move Weaver, the power will play but Im not sure my park is the park for him especially defensively. Moran has been a solid big leaguer, but we want to give Morales and Vilade a long look. For our trouble we get the oft-offered MacMurchie whose curious mix of power/eye up the middle intrigues me. We like Rosado, though he'll likely transition to the pen Nice dealing with you as always Greg!
  14. The Giants send noted Angel-killer SP Pat Crosby (ML, retain 5%) to the Mariners for RP Michihiro Hashimoto (ML) and SS Tre McKedy (A- Everett) Nothing too fancy here motivation-wise. Got Crosby on the cheap and flipping for a prospect after a solid 8-start Giants career. The true motivation is that it enables us to give 22-year-old flamethrowing arm John Hawkins a chance to see if he can start rather than coming out of the pen. Thanks soze!
