    Scooter with the Giants:
    .234/.254/.391 for an OPS of .644 , with 2 HRs and 1 walk and 21 Ks in 67 plate appearances. That won't yield much of a return.

    What kind of nonsense is this?

    We should be getting Puig and Trammell back in the Bauer trade then...

    The Puig trade is not comparable because it didn't center around a player to be named later. PTBNL deals are often set up that way because they want to base it on performance. It's not nonsense. It's the real world

    "The ultimate player to be named later"

    In February 1985, Uribe, David Green, Dave LaPoint and Gary Rajsich were dealt to the San Francisco Giants for Jack Clark. Between the time of the initial trade and his delivery, he changed his name from José González Uribe (Uribe is his mother's maiden name; González is his father's name. (See Spanish naming customs) to just José Uribe because, as he put it, "There are too many Gonzálezes in baseball!" Thus, he was humorously referred to as "the player to be named later"[1] and sometimes "the ultimate player to be named later",[2] a quote attributed to coach Rocky Bridges.".

    Things are easy today. When I was a kid, we played dodgeball with horseshoes.

    I remember when Jose Uribe changed his name from Jose Gonzalez. He was right -- the Dodgers had an outfielder named Jose Gonzalez at the same time he played.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I think he's done for the year. Will be interesting to see what kind of deal he ends up with next year.
