Giants to Pursue Jason Bay?

71

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that the Giants plan to make a run at free agent outfielder Jason Bay. Bay, who has engaged in early talks with the Red Sox, is also expected to draw interest from the Mets, Yankees, among others. Bay hit .267 with 36 home runs this season, but went just 1-for-8 in the postseason. Despite putting up career highs in home runs and RBIs, Bay hit 13 points below his career average and struck out a career high 162 times. Still, Bay will be one of the most coveted free agents this offseason and could draw a deal worth 15-17 million dollars annually.

Jay Glazer Mailbag: Here's hoping Crabtree holdout ends soon

QUESTION — Daniel from Fontana, Calif., on Michael Crabtree: "Do you think he will ever come to his senses and sign with San Francisco? Does he even want to be there?" jay_glazer: I actually do. If his belief is that he's going to be a top-five pick next year, well then why wasn't he one this year? His value won't increase after missing a year. Just ask Mike Williams. Plus, people were already on guard regarding his character with the buzz heading into this past draft saying he was a diva. This certainly won't help to dispel that notion. As I reported on Sunday on FOX NFL Sunday, the 49ers sent him a letter the week before the season began saying they would modify their offer if he was not in by Week 1. I don't see them caving on their price. On a personal note, I hope he signs soon. I did a Subway commercial with him during the draft and actually liked him a lot. It's a shame to see his name getting bashed, because I really think he's a good kid. The whole thing's a shame.

Focus on Bonds Misses the Big Picture - Wiliam C. Rhoden, New York TImes

in case you guys hadn't seen this yet - came out a couple days ago - "At a time when the nation is in one of the deepest recessions in its history, when hundreds of thousands of Americans are barely surviving, the government is spending millions of dollars to prosecute Barry Bonds." Is anyone else getting as angry as I am at all this complete and total BS? I didn't elect my Congressmen to obsess over steroid use in baseball. It's against the MLB rules now, but it didn't used to be and personally I don't care if a baseball player has used them or not. If you read about it, it is perfectly clear that the federal prosecutors were intentionally trying to bait Bonds into committing perjury in the first place so that they could have something to convict him with. Now they're putting pressure on Greg Anderson by harrassing his family trying to force him to give in and testify. All this brought to you by your own personal f-ing taxpayer dollars.

But here is another thing Nolan really needs to do: Root like crazy for the Raiders to keep losing under new interim coach Tom Cable. Why? Because if Cable is a big success over the next several weeks after replacing the fired Lane Kiffin, and Cable is having that success right across the bay, it might convince 49ers management that a midseason coaching move can actually succeed. Almost always, it doesn't. History proves this. Fans don't like to hear that. But facts are facts. Football isn't like baseball, where a team can switch managers halfway through a season, see a big turnaround, and wind up in the World Series. That doesn't happen in the NFL. There are so many more moving parts — bigger rosters, more complicated X's and O's, more assistant coaches to coordinate. That doesn't mean Nolan should get a free pass the rest of the way. It just means that if the 49ers were going to make a change, they should have done so last winter. And if they want to make a change soon ... well, they should probably just wait until next January, as well. People want to believe a new head coach in October or November can work miracles overnight. Usually, it just results in a lousy losing team finishing up the season as ... a lousy losing team. Since 1930, there have been 85 cases of an NFL team changing coaches in midseason. Guess how many of those changes resulted in that team making the playoffs? The answer: three times. But zero times since 1961.

Is This True??? Could we get T.J. Houshmandzadeh this season?

T.J. Houshmandzadeh to Be A 49ER?

2

With the NFL's trading deadline less than a week away, there is already one big name that has hit the rumor mill. There are reports that the San Francisco 49ers are interested in the Bengals T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Housh is a free agent after this season and there doesn't seem to be any way the team can keep him (other than using the franchise tag). According to a league source, Houshmandzadeh's name has come up quite frequently during conversation at Niners headquarters in recent weeks. Apparently, 49ers offensive coordinator Mike Martz is enamored with Houshmandzadeh and may have learned some positive things about the receiver from a member of the Zampese family who Martz remains close to. Housh tied the Patriots' Wes Welker for the NFL lead in receptions last season. Currently, he is by far the team leader in receptions (31), receiving yards (351) and touchdown receptions (three). He caught seven passes for 85 yards and two TDs against the Cowboys last week. Despite being 2-3, the Niners have a great shot at winning the weak NFC West. The Arizona Cardinals lead the division at 3-2 but doesn't have the look of a runaway champion. The Seattle Seahawks are in shambles right now and the St. Louis Rams look like the worst team in the NFL. It is there for the taking and adding Houshmandzadeh to the Niners could put them over the top.
