No, if only. I’d love to have that sexy elf on our 25-man roster right now. He’d at the very least ensure a continued home sellout streak.
Orlando Cabrera, on the other hand, is a non-improvement. There really isn’t much to say about this, other than that it cements the demotion of a particularly astute defensive SS with a particularly inept bat. You know who.
It also opens up the possibility for a disgusting 75/25 split with one Miguel Tejada. I just see it happening and I’m afraid.
After initial reactions, I couldn’t care less about Neal going. As a few have pointed out, he wasn’t amounting to much and was never going to be a viable option for the Giants with current OF depth. Simple as that.
So, meh. It’s almost like discovering a corpse in a room — in this case, Carlos Beltran, and then finding a slightly less interesting corpse in the far corner. Of course, we love corpses in this hypothetical, but who doesn’t love corpses? Orlando
Bloom Cabrera is just the less interesting cadaver.
Maybe Sabean knows something we don’t. Like that Orlando has been eating HGH Cheerios or something and getting away with it.
