I just want to qualify why keeping Jeff Fassero is such a stupid, useless move.
Which player is hurt now and stands to miss a significant portion of the season for the Giants? Hm, guy by the name of Bonds? Barry Bonds?
What does Bonds provide?
Great defense? No.
Offense? Well, of course.
So now, with the greatest source of offense in baseball gone from the lineup for an unspecified period of time, does it make any sense to keep an extra pitcher, when it's your offense that just took the mightiest of blows right on the chin? Does it make sense to keep Fassero, a mediocre-at-best bullpen pitcher, instead of Brian Dallimore, who was the team's best OFFENSIVE player this spring?
Don't get me wrong, I don't have visions of Dallimore hitting .500 for the season or anything, but when the need of your team is offense and you send your best remaining option for extra offense back to Fresno, it really doesn't make a whole lot of freaking sense to me.
