Giants’ Pence Is Top Outfield Trade Target

The outfield trading market, once bordering on woeful, looks a bit better with Hunter Penceavailable and hitting well. Giancarlo Stanton, Michael Cuddyer and Jose Bautista remain all but certain to stay put, but Pence is a big add to a fairly thin group.

GameDay: Braun’s Admission Won’t Change PED Problem

Lawyers draw up a statement and carefully avoid any mention of steroids. That’s the way it’s done so the “words” won’t come back to bite the cheaters in the rear end. Bruan, naturally, is being vilified because of his vehement denial last year when he walked because of a technicality. (Memo to the tester: Don’t store Bruan’s pee in your home fridge) His lawyers smartly worked out a plea deal with MLB that won’t extend to 150 games, thus saving him $4.5 million into next season.

Giants Passed On Chance To Draft Mike Trout

How can 21 teams pass up on a kid that might be the best player in all of baseball at the age of 21? I guess even the best mess up sometimes, and must not feel too smart now.
