…. Things that make you go hmmmmm…

As Brett Tomko once again works hard to keep the Giants out of the playoffs, I read a tiny little blurb in the SF Chronicle’s Giants notebook piece that I wanted to share:

“The Giants have said they are not optimistic about a trade, but they are still looking. Two of GM Brian Sabean’s top scouts were in Arizona on Friday night, when Randy Johnson faced Cincinnati. The Giants could be looking at starters and relievers. ”

I have written about the Giants obtaining Johnson before:

… send Felix Rodriguez and a couple more prospects to the D’backs for Johnson. Sure, you’ll end up eating about, what, $8 million for the half season rental; but Johnson and Schmidt are absolutely powerful enough to give you the same championship chance that the Big Unit did when he was teamed up with Curt (I am too an asshole) Schilling in 2001.

… And I’ll say it again; it’s exactly the kind of move the Giants should be making with a chance to ride Bonds and Schmidt to a title. A Johnson/Schmidt tandem would be just as dominating (if not more) as the Johnson/Schilling pairing was in leading the D’backs to the promised land in 2001. Oh, and we have, in fact, traded away Felix. Only we got about ten percent of what we should have, I mean, come on, Ricky Ledee!?
