…. Back to the future

Lots of comments about the possibilities for the Giants next season, prospects-wise, as well as who we could get in trades or draft choices. Over at Baseball Prospectus, Kevin Goldstein has this to say about the Giants farm system:

…. How bad is the Giants organization when it comes to offensive prospects? 25-year-old first baseman Chad Santos, who started the year in Triple-A, has 14 home runs overall and that’s good enough to lead the entire minor league system. Despite the impressive record, this is not a good team for prospects.

That’s right, the Giants very best hitting prospect is a 25-year old. The future’s not looking too bright when your best hitting prospect has been in the minors for 5 or 6 years. Kevin also has some info on the Shea Hillebrand acquisition:

…. Once the Giants acquired Shea Hillenbrand, it made Lance Niekro expendable, so all he’s done since getting sent down is hit 10 home runs in 12 games. Meanwhile Hillenbrand is batting a useless .230/.240/.378.

Watching last night’s game, I saw that Hillebrand is now 0 for 13 with runners in scoring position since he got here. Useless, indeed.
