Rosario in the Orange and Black

It's odd to type this -- Sandy Rosario is now a Giant. For a guy who's been awful in the MLB, he's certainly drawn plenty of interest in the offsason. So if the Giants are claiming him, someone clearly believes he's still got a shot. Chris Haft of has a story on the official team web site-- 

On Oct. 17, Boston claimed him off waivers from Miami. Then on Nov. 28, the Red Sox traded him to the A's for a player to be named later, who turned out to be right-hander Graham Godfrey.
Boston reacquired Rosario through a waiver claim on Dec. 10. Two days later, Rosario went from the Red Sox to the Cubs on another waiver claim.
Rosario made 10 appearances from 2010-12 with the Marlins, posting no record and a 15.26 ERA. That included an 18.00 ERA in four outings this past season.

He's the 9th Rosario to have played in the bigs. 

Count yourself a real Giants fan if you know that one of those is Jimmy Rosario, who was an outfielder for the Orange and Black in 1971 and 1972.
