DateQuestionAnswer
2012-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)How exactly can the Giants legitimately say that Melky Cabrera isn't worthy of a spot on the team when they keep corpses like Aubrey Huff and Guillermo Mota on the roster? Don't you want to put the best roster possible on a World Series roster? While Melky hasn't hit MLB-level pitching in months, Huff hasn't hit it in years.
(jlarsen from chicago)
I thought the Melky decision was staggeringly wrong when it was originally made. Then I saw Mike Ferrin's piece on players coming back from long layoffs.

http://bit.ly/RralCb

I was shocked by the results, to be honest. Add in the inability to play high-level rehab games and you could argue Melky would be even worse off (though perhaps the lack of an injury would lead you to argue he'd be better off). Regardless, I think it's fair for the Giants to conclude that he's probably not better than Blanco. As for being better than Huff: Yeah, definitely. No doubt better than Huff. But if those are the stakes we're talking about (25th man, last guy on the bench) then it's harder to get too excised about it and it's easier to appreciate that they wouldn't want all the disruption just for a 25th man. Basically: Cabrera would have made them a bit better and that's what I'd have done; but probably barely, and I'm willing to defer to the guys in the room on this one. (Sam Miller)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Prince Fielder vs Guillermo Mota... 12 rounds, must be a winner... WHO YA GOT????
(strupp from Madison)
Are they boxing? Mixed martial arts? Cage match? I demand a cage match. Ladder match in a cage! (Marc Normandin)
