http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?...6/SPQ1VKOGR.DTL I know there's not a lot of San Francisco Giants fans on this board, and Rich Aurilia getting playing time isn't very newsworthy to 99.99% of the world, but it irritates the heck out of me. Barry Bonds is gone. He probably should have been two seasons ago. But he's gone. The team hasn't been competitive for a few years and hasn't won a championship in over 50. It's time to stop giving time to over the hill players. The Giants do not have a young up and coming star, aside from Angel Villalona, who is at least a year and a half away. But when you aren't competing, you should be playing guys like Fred Lewis (27), Rajai Davis (27) , Nate Schierholtz (24), Kevin Frandsen (25), and Dan Ortmeier (26). Just because they aren't going to win MVP's doesn't mean they can't contribute to a winning team in the future. Rich Aurilia, Dave Roberts, and Ray Durham should not be playing. They young guys should. The older guys should be traded or just out right cut. They can't hit. (Randy Winn can, so that's why he's not in that group. Omar Vizquel isn't really blocking anyone right now, so I left him out too.). They are in front of the younger players who can hopefully improve a little and help the team in a few years when they are ready to compete again. C-Molina age 33 1b-Aurilla age 36 2b-Durham age 36 ss- Vizquel age 40 (Once he returns from the DL) 3rd-Frandsen age 25 RF-Winn age 33 CF-Rowand age 30 LF-Roberts age 35 Does that look like a team that is rebuilding or competing? I don't see either one there. Their big offseason signing of Aaron Rowand? They already had four guys who could play centerfield before signing him. He played in a bandbox and is now in a pitchers park. Great pickup.
