I'm not the only one bashing Brian Sabean

In the latter stages of the postgame call-in show on KNBR last night, Damon Bruce was pounding on Sabean's incompetence following a disappointing 9-4 loss that eliminated the Orange and Black from the post-season last night.

Bruce focused in the lunacy of trying to develop players like Eric Threets -- a 7-year minor leaguer who looked awful in his MLB debut in the 9th. His point was that if a guy isn't ready for the MLB by the time he's 25, he's never going to be anything other than a marginal player at best. Outside of Lincecum (who was pretty much fully developed), Cain and perhaps Lowry, there's not a single player who's been internally developed that's a legitimate big league starter. Ortmeier and Schierholtz may wind up being that but I'm skeptical, given Sabean's track record.

You're not alone. I've been doing the same thing on ObsessiveGiantsCompulsive bolg, but I seem to be beating my head against the wall. See the thread below. It's one of the many on his site where I take issue with his defending Sabean's strategies.
