Great move by Bowden. I like this move. I have followed the Giants awhile and firmly believe the Giants gave up on him.
He is young (he's 29 yrs old). And sometimes it takes awhile for someone like him to gain consistency in their game. Gullett is probably the only one who can teach him this.
If anything, in the last several months we have added some good people to our pitching staff (Dempster, Moehler, and Chen) and now Estes.
Bowden is cleverly building this team up for a late run for this year and..... gearing up next year and beyond.
