Meanwhile, the Giants won their third in a row, behind Brett Tomko’s best effort of the year, (by a mile), a complete game four-hitter.
Early indications are pointing towards a two-headed closer, with Herges and Fassero sharing the workload. Of all the possible options, including my own badly received suggestion to use Jason Christiansen, the decision to use a 42-year old specialist and a head case who failed so spectacularly last season would lead me to believe that whoever lands that Giants fantasy GM job has a real opportunity to unseat the real one.
Seriously, how in the hell could Sabean and Alou and the rest of these guys think that Herges has overcome his multiple personality disorder? How could anyone come to the conclusion that Fassero has any chance at all of being able to go more than two times a week? For crying out loud, use Eyre! Use Reuter! Herges?! Doesn’t Sabean remember the season that almost was in 2004?
