Looking to 2012

The first thing, always, is to see what you've got when once you sort through the debris and shrapnel. Regrettably, when discussing the Giants' available talent, one almost has to have two...

All Your Posey/Cousins Stuff in One Place

That's the basic idea here: to try to clear out the game threads (and other FanPosts) of the seemingly endless backs and forths on this topic. I'll open the floor up with a few thoughts of my own.

Suppose you did get Sabean's job.

Ignoring the myriad of things you don't even know a GM does and sticking strictly to player-personnel issues, what--exactly--would you do, and in what order?  Try to keep reality in mind: no...

Edgar Renteria: a stat snapshot

Poor Edgar is another of the Rodney Dangerfields around here.  I thought I'd take a quick snapshot of where he is now, not to prove any very definite hypothesis, but just to get some perspective. ...
