DateQuestionAnswer
2009-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)I like Willingham a lot. It seems like the Nats do too, so what do you think the Giants would have to part with to get him?
(Gregjitsu from Still Southern Cal)
Well, he won't be a free agent until 2012, so it will take more than it took to get Ryan Garko (which was Single A pitcher Scott Barnes, who was considered one of the team's better pitching prospects) but nothing along the lines of Bumgarner. Maybe someone like Henry Sosa. (Eric Seidman)
