The Giants received two body blows in the last few days. First, Assistant GM Ned Colletti jumped ship to become the GM of the hated, despised, Los Angeles Dodgers, something akin to Josey Wales becoming a bluecoat. But, as bad as that loss is, I would guess that losing Colletti won’t be nearly as big a deal, though, as today’s shocker.
Losing Scott Eyre, arguably the team’s best pitcher last year, is a tremendous setback, and speaks volumes of what players in MLB think about the constant stream of horseshit decision-making, second-city whining about how the team can’t spend any money while selling amlmost 4 million tickets each year, and the failure of the coaching staff to anticipate and/or correct the numerous pitcher failures of the last two seasons.
In short, if a guy whose career was resurrected here doesn’t want to be a Giant, then it’s pretty likely that nobody does.
