2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)So with Scoots back in the fold what is next for the Giants? Do you think they bring The Riot back for insurance? I can't see them settling for a Blanco-Peguero LF platoon, so might we see them bring in someone with a bit more pop for LF?
(cal guy from cal)
Last I heard, Theriot was interested in coming back as a utility guy. While I'm not a huge fan of his skillset, he's certainly an adequate backup. So, if the price is right, sure, bring him back. There's always Joaquin Arias, too, though, if Theriot wants too much $$. (Ian Miller)
