Winn to the Giants
More in a moment, but this seems to me to be a pretty good deal for the M’s. [Interestingly, Jayson Stark actually had to take a call while on the air to confirm that the deal was done.]
Foppert is a nice addition. He’s had both control and injury problems, but his minor league numbers are solid, and he was considered a top prospect before Tommy John surgery in 2003. Just turned 25, and I like him better than Sean Henn, although I’d certainly trust Dave much more on that.
Edited by Dave: Great move. Foppert and Nageotte are very comparable. I’ll have more later.
Torrealba is nothing special, but he adds much-needed catching depth. Maybe they’re just collecting catchers to see if the M’s can find one they can’t screw up.
