What the hell, it doesn't even say who the minor leaguers are. I'm sure that they're top of the line though, knowing KW!

Felix Diaz is ranked as the 5th best prospect in the Giants organization by Baseball America,a four pitch pitcher that throws in the mid 90's.

I'm still checking on Meaux,who is a LHP playing A ball right now.

Sure does. Per the giants board, he's injury prone, however.

Well, this is KW we're talking about here. At least he isn't another Adkins.

So my question is, does this follow the Dave Wills axiom that "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in awhile"? :D:

Now it's all a matter of who gets the call, if they move Willie to Center they need someone to play Second, can't call up Hummel cause of the CBA, this means they may call-up Jimenez :o: :(: Or they could do something completely different and call up a pitcher or something... I don't know.

Well Sabean is desperate for warm bodies to play the outfeild in San Fran,so maybe Kenny did something right for a change.

Diaz. Little guy who missed most of his first year, I think.

And Meaux - sounds like he's from my neck of the woods. Can't be all bad.

Wouldn't Borchard be the one who gets the call? Considering that he's a center fielder and we traded our center fielder, it's not out of the question.

It just may be :) For once we actually got 2 guys for 1 instead of the other way around!

Not with the strike on the horizon. He's not on the 40 man.

Meaux, how is that pronounced?

Well, we know that there's no chance in hell that Crede will be called up. :(:

I sure don't want to see Rowand as our all-time CF.

well thank god we made a decent trade for once. 2 down, and hopefully a few more of our lowly starters to go.

Something that hasn't been mentioned about the trade is the Sox and Giants have agreed to split the money in the bonuses Lofton recieves.
