Anybody but Jose

Rather than celebrate Barry Bonds' 721st homer or the Dodgers being swept in St. Louis, I'm obliged to post about the less-than-worthy state of rest of the Giants offense, which contributed next to nothing in today's 6-2 loss at Mays Field. What's truly alarming was seeing Ray Durham, who also homered, go out of the game with a shoulder injury and get replaced by Jose Vizcaino. Talk about waving the white flag.

MEMO TO BRIAN SABEAN -- Is this the Edgardo Alfonzo Memorial Roster Spot? What are you trying to prove by hanging onto to that washed-up loser Jose Vizcaino? Here he was wasting two more ABs today at Mays Field -- including one in the 9th -- to push his line for the year down to 24 for 103 with 3 doubles, 1 HR and 4 RBIs. As much as it pains me to say it, Neifi Perez would be an improvement. If you're serious about trying to win the NL West, which shouldn't be that hard, here are some simple suggestions of decent middle-infielders who should be available and would be a significant upgrade in games when Durham, Vizquel or Feliz need to sit:

Craig Counsell, Damion Easley, Ramon Vazquez, Rich Aurilia and Jose Hernandez. Check them out. PLEASE!!!!!!

Not only did Vizcaino replace Durham in the field, but he replaced him as the #5 hitter, the guy hitting behind Bonds. What is amazing is how many guys better than Vizcaino will be available in trade in the next two weeks. Dozens of them.

So, Big D, how do you really feel about Jose?
