What about Suppan?

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is hinting that the Giants have made a 4-year $44 million offer for Jeff Suppan.

The guy isn't anything special but his record seems consistent. The price doesn't sound unreasonable, given the inflation that's taken place over the last month. And there's something to be said for getting a pitcher from the team that's just won a World Series -- mostly that he's going to get a nice premium for a decent post-season performance.

The deal probably won't happen since the Mets are still going wacky chasing after free agents. It may be just as well. I still want to see Jonathan Sanchez get another shot.

Yes, what can be said about it is that it is insanity. This guy is not worth a fraction of that kind of money. If they want a crappy journeyman pitcher, they could get the same pitcher for about $1M a year, Steve Trachsel. If the Giants make this deal, this will rank up there amongst their all time worst signings, right alongside Rennie Stennett, Armando Benitez, Bengie Molina, Matt Morris......

I hope you're wrong about Molina, who's actually a decent hitter for a catcher, and Morris, who was pitching with an injury.
