And Pablo hit .330 in 153 games in his first full season.
He was crazy good. There is no way Hector is *that* good now.
Pablo had about 10 ABs too many in 2008 to be ROY eligible. But I can't imagine how he wouldn't have been the unanimous pick in 2009.
So, so good. So, so young.
Thanx buddy, kinda sad only 90 minutes from home and I never go out watch them. I've been hearing good things about Susac and hopefully tonight he'll turn it around and the rest of the team will follow suit.
NO to trading hector.
San Jose had all the top minor league talent a few years ago and they were really good. Madbum, Posey, pablo, hector sanchez, they all spent time in SJ now they are here. Wheeler was down there shutting down hitters before he got traded. Fun games to go see, especailly when the top prospects are there. Are system isn't quite as loaded as it was, so the talent level is a little down.
"I dunno man, the way they are using him right now...he seems pretty valuable to us, "
If he's valuable to us, just think how much more valuable he'll be for someone who doesn't have a good catcher right now. It'll be a huge return on trade because we already have a catcher.... but hey, i'm glad his on our team now.
Posey is fine, and he won't need that many breaks after this season. Hector was a mid-ish level prospect in many evaluators eyes, if you can flip him for elite talent due to scarcity of talent at the position, then you do it.
"Hector was a mid-ish level prospect in many evaluators eyes"
I'm sure that changing with his current major league performance. Pablo was not talked about until 2008, his 5th year in the Giants system. If Hector was a dark horse at 28 like Pill, I would totally agree, but at 22, playing above his "evaluation," it would be selling low to flip him now.
Hector has an unknown upside, like Sandoval had.
My point is that we don't know what a serious WIN is, since we are just now seeing a rise in his "upside."
STAND PAT, IMO. He's helping the team right now. His future value is not as important as that.
