a steep price

The Giants finally did something dubitable today when they acquired Freddy Sanchez for their best pitching prospect. 
Freddy Sanchez is one of my favorite players but I would never trade a slap hitter for my best pitching prospect. I would cry if the Dodgers did it so part of me is happy the Giants did it. I believe a slap hitter like Sanchez/Rafael Furcal will encounter trouble when they play a team with solid range in the infield.
Tim Alderson has Cy Young potential. With the Twins connected to Sanchez, the Giants had to pay a high price.

This move, combined with the Phillies move, mean the Dodgers have to do something. If they don’t their GM Ned Coletti needs to be fired.
