Despite injury concerns, Sheets is worth the risk

Keith Law: Top 100 prospects


6. Madison Bumgarner 8. Gerald Posey Edit note: not member so only have access to Top 25

Keith Law Ranks SF Farm System #9

9. San Francisco Giants: Speaking of top-heavy, the Giants' front four prospects rival just about anyone's, but after those guys and Conor Gillaspie, the quality drops off quickly, even in the face of two very good recent drafts. The Giants do have some interesting names who will be in extended spring training or the Sally League this year, but no impact guys beyond the top four.

Salary Dump for Salary Dump


The Dodgers and Scott Boras came up with a win/win situation to the Andruw Jones albatross contract. The Dodgers now want to trade Jones and his lower 2009 salary. Why doesn't Ned and Brian met at a bar in The Castro and hammer out a salary dump trade. Andruw Jones for Dave Roberts with the Giants on the hook for nothing more than the $6.5M they are already scheduled to pay Roberts in 2009. Why would Ned and Brian agree to such a deal? Because both players are not helping their current team and the change of team might help.

Taschner, 30, was eligible for salary arbitration, but the Giants could have cast him into free agency had they declined to tender him a contract by Friday's 9 p.m. PT deadline.

Yankees and CC Sabathia?
