    The Giants are trying to get Hideki Matsui

    ESPN is reporting that the Giants close to a deal that involves Jonathan Sanchez and Hideki Matsui. The Yankees reportedly rejected a Matsui for Lowry deal, but the two teams seem confident that the can work something around Sanchez and Matsui.

    I think EE is a better trading chip than Matsui, especially considering all of Matsui's injuries last year, and how young EE is.


    I now understand that trading EE for Lowry is a mistake (thanks Baseclogger, Bib Roberts and Jay Bruce), but would anyone like the Reds to trade EE for Sanchez?

    I say no, since he is just another version of Bailey. A prospect with half a season under his belt. The Reds don't need another prospect, they need major league ready arms. But he is a good one, a possible #1 starter.

    Agree? Disagree?

    Agree- EE for Sanchez would be bad.

    He was 22 when he was signed, which means he has been significantly older than most at each level. He will be 26 next year.

    He also appears to have some control issues.

    Anyone else beginning to think the pricetag for frontline pitching is too steep?
    Who's on first?

    If the Giants are trying to get Matsui I think it is as much about marketability as it is production. Matsui is extremely popular with the very large Japanese population in San Fran. EE would never be considered.

    a very good point. We sometimes forget this is a business too...
