BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Walker saw little action with the Giants after a lousy season at Fresno, then inked a one-year, $525,000 deal with the White Sox for '05. With Damaso Marte rumored in several possible deals, the Sox want to have lefty options available just in case. They'll get a rude awakening if they think Walker can be even half as good as Marte.
