I Told You Freddy Sanchez Wasn’t Coming to the Cubs

MLB News and Rumors

The San Francisco Giants just acquired Sanchez from the Pirates.


Leaving no ambiguity about their intention to chase a playoff spot this season, the Giants dealt heralded minor league pitcher Tim Alderson — seen by many as a cornerstone of the team’s future rotation — to the Pittsburgh Pirates for All-Star second baseman Freddy Sanchez. San Jose Mercury News.

Alderson was the number four prospect in a relatively decent Giant farm system. Yo. That’s a steep price to pay for a guy who is obviously declining, not great, and going to be massively overpaid next year.
