This is not a bad thing in my opinion, and no way, they should not bring him back. Enough is enough with players like this guy. Turn this thing over to the kids and lets see what happens. I mean the best thing that could have happened in the post season this year was for the Giants to win the world series. Lets compare them and the O's. Young catcher with all the talent in the world, check. Young, younger, and wow how old are you in the starting rotation? Check. Older middle infielder (Edgar compared to Brian for us), check. Corner IF's who couldn't hit 30 HR in a little league park, check and check. Young up and coming corner IF who hasn't lived up to potential, check for them, 2 for us but hey Snyder and Bell are about the same size combined as Sandoval. How about the OF....Could Pat Burrell and Luke Scott be the same person? How about Cody Ross compared to Nick, decent players probably not well known or feared more than a 50 miles radius from their home park. Lastly, a devastating closer that was completely unknown just a few seasons ago (OK we are still missing that piece as neither Koji or Gonzales are even close to Wilson). Outside of that I think both teams look very much the same, sure Brian is not the Freak yet, put the potential is there.
