thank god SOMEONE in the Giants organization has a frikkin' brain. I vote Rags takes over for Sabean, and Sabean gets sent to clean the urinals under the bleachers.

There are A LOT of "SP's" in that list. With Lowry's physical problems, and the continuing inconsistency of starter-in-training J Sanchez, would we be nuts to take a chance on someone?

(And thanks for adding my blog to your list.)
