The Giants don't want to give Kenny what he wants

New, comments

says Mark Gonzales:

San Francisco, the most likely suitor for Crede, and the Sox have disparate evaluations that carry ramifications for both sides.

A talent evaluator familiar with both teams said the Sox were miffed the Giants' offers for Crede included since-released pitcher Scott Williamson; pitcher Randy Messenger, who was optioned to Triple-A Fresno last week; and veteran outfielder Dave Roberts.

The source said the Giants believe Sox general manager Ken Williams' asking price -- one of the Giants' top prospects and a serviceable young reliever -- was too steep for a 29-year-old infielder coming off season-ending back surgery.

... The Sox, according to the scout, also have inquired about left-hander Jonathan Sanchez. But the Giants are facing pitching issues after losing left-hander Noah Lowry to a hand injury through April and appear inclined to keep Sanchez.

... The Dodgers had a scout at the Sox's game Tuesday against Texas. They currently are sticking with Nomar Garciaparra at third while Andy LaRoche recovers from a hand injury that could sideline him through May.

Update [2008-3-14 1:35:4 by The Cheat]: First, let me thank Wiz. It's so easy to fall out of the habit of posting here, and I haven't felt like writing the last few days. No news from me. I'm just tossing this bit up here.

I'm almost 88.7% sure we're still having this ultra-formal little get together this weekend.

Where: Miller's Pub
When: Saturday. During the game, stupid.
