Oh Please, oh please, oh please...
According to MLB.com, Moises Alou wants to be a Giant.
Make no mistake about this, he WANTS to come here. If he were offered identical contracts from every team, he'd pick SF.
Do we want him?
Well he's old. 38. So he fits right in. An outfield of Bonds, Grissom, and Alou may well be one of the oldest outfields ever.
Last year he hit .291 and smacked 39 HRs for an OPS of .919. .919!!! If he can even come close to his career average of .880, how much of a lift is that over The Tuckernator?
I know what you're saying. We don't need offence. We need pitching.
Well actually, we need a Bullpen. Our rotation is fine. I'm perfectly happy with Schmidt/Tomko/Williams/Lowry/Rueter(Foppert). That's a good group. But come on, do we want to overpay for Percival? How much would Benitez cost?
But the offence... Add Alou. Here's your line-up.
Random Catcher (Yorvit, A.J., whatever)
Suddenly, we can score some serious runs. Suddenly, we have that 2nd real threat we've lacked since El Truck Washer left town.
This is not a pipe dream... HE WANTS TO COME HERE!
Who's with me?
