Haven't seen anything about this posted yet, but apparently the Giants have asked about Jenkins. Do they even have anyone worth trading for? Or could we get a bag of balls?

Quote:
Even if Bonds returns to the club, Sabean said he would look to acquire another run-producer if he doesn't use the rest of his funds on pitching. The Giants have spoken to the Milwaukee Brewers about outfielder Geoff Jenkins, sources said.

The Giants also have had conversations with Philadelphia about Pat Burrell and Milwaukee about Geoff Jenkins, but nothing is imminent.

I am not sure if we need a nother MI. And I don't think we could get lowry or cain for Jenkins, they are both upper level starters.

Matt Cain ain't going anywhere.

Think Kevin Correia or Brad Hennessey. (Correia has been pitching out of the pen, but he can start.)

Brad Hennessey in my eyes would be a an ok trade. Allows us to maybe make another move with one of our other pitchers! Hennessey will be serviceable!

At least he wouldn't hit any more HRs off us.

I don't think I agree with that. His ERA was nice at 4.26, but his FIP was an awful 5.50. His K/BB ratio was also awful at 1.00.

I'd rather have Kevin Correia. He didn't start any games last year, but he had started 11 the year before. This year out of the pen he posted a 3.49 ERA with a 3.57 FIP and a 2.59 K/BB ratio.

Of all the teams in either league, I'd say the Giants have the least amount of pitching to deal.

If we trade to SF I want to get that bullpen pitcher that was born in Milwaukee in the deal too. Someone help me on the name "Tauschner" something like that, he is a lefty and he would want to come to the Brewers I think, plus we need another southpaw in the pen.

Jack Taschner.

He'd be a decent addition as well.

That's is name, and I think he is fairly young as well, just to lazy to look it up at the moment.

He is from Racine, and he is within a year of my age (28) I believe...

Went to high school with him (Racine Horlick), he was a senior when I was a freshman. Nice guy, I'm sure he'd love the chance to play here.

Like if Rickey was playing middle IF in MLB now, at like 50? Because the dude hit .213/.302/.265 in the Cal league last year. He had a nice year in 2005, but when he moved up he was awful.

SF always seemed like the most logical place for Jenkins to wind up. From SF's perspective, they could be thinking that Jenkins needs a change of scenery. What better place to get that change than the area of California that Jenkins is from.

Unfortunately, getting quality pitching help from SF could be tough... not much depth there.

I'd gladly take Taschner and the salary relief to be used elsewhere.

They have to be able to do better than Taschner. Man, if the guy wasn't born in WI, I don't think he'd even be seen as a consideration.

Jenkins is a youngster by the Giants' standards!

People calling for salary relief should realize if Jenkins isn't traded for a contract, the money won't get spent. There really isn't anything out there that will improve the team for $7 million.
