DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who has your favourite name to say? Who has your favourite other people say? Past present or future!
(otirol from Southern Ontario)
Currently it's Arismendy Alcántara, all time is a toughie, but:
Eugenio Velez
Placido Polanco
Vladimir Guerrero
Raimel Tapia
Runelvys Hernandez


are a few of my all time favorites. (Mauricio Rubio)
2010-06-07 18:30:00 (link to chat)Ugh....Gary Brown...I think I prefer a real hitter for the Giants. The Giants don't seem to have any luck turning out position players, so I would have liked them to select the guy with the most polished bat, Cox or Brentz or Gyorko. I just don't trust the Giants to turn a hacker into a decent player. I read his profile and just think...Eugenio Velez...Darren Ford, and then I throw up in my mouth a little.
(Gregjitsu from SoCal)
He's bigger, stronger and faster than those guys. You're making poor assumptions. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Best chat session ever, thanks Christina! If you are the Giants what are you looking to do this off-season? Also, presuming Molina's gone, where do you slot in Buster Posey into the offense?
(Parker from San Fran)
Fiddle, there's nary a mention of Ataturk or the invention of the stirrup's role at the Battle of Hastings, let alone any talk about the redemptive value of heavy metal. Now that'd be something, but I'll settle for baseball. ;)

They really should be in the market for a bat, because Ryan Garko's just a placeholder at first base--assuming they tender him. Perhaps they get in on Adrian Beltre or Chone Figgins, and move Sandoval to first; Figgins might be game for a move back to second, though, which would beat placing faith in Eugenio Velez. Posey and no more screwing around with not just leaving Fred Lewis be gives them enough runs and an improved defense. Spending high on the first basemen on the market isn't very attractive (Adam LaRoche) or comes with risk (Nick Johnson), so I guess I'd rather find ways to get Sandoval off of third base. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Eugenio Velez already has 5 steals this spring for the Giants. Will he make the roster, and does he has Chone Figgins potential?
(Jay from DC)
I'm not a big Velez believer at all. He's kinda 75% of Chone Figgins. He's very fast and can play multiple positions, but he's really not good at any up the middle position other than second base and he has no plate discipline. For me, he's closer to Freddy Bynum than Chone Figgins. (Kevin Goldstein)
