Nope, but you can expect Scott Spezio to die an early death at Barry's expense.

I voted no because his contract with the Giants goes through 2006, and the Giants won't be winning the World Series any time soon unless there is a dramatic makeover soon.

His only hope is to have the Giants void his contract after the 2005 season because he doesn't get enough plate appearances. They can void after 2005 unless he has 500PA in 2005 or 1500PA 2003-5.

Perhaps he will demand a trade to the Angels to fulfill his childhood dream? Then he could DH and win a World Series.

not a chance in hell. The Giants only look to get worse in the coming years.

Yeah, they need 3 big bat sluggers and star pitcher. Replace Snow with Helton, AJ with Lopez, Tucker with Guerrero, and Williams with Martinez.

I think they still have a slight chance this year. Who in the West is really that good? Diamondbacks, Rockies? Ha ha.....I can only see the Padres making a run at the divison championship. Once you make the playoffs anything can happen.

ke ke ke

Regardless of how sucky the NL West is, who ever comes out of it will get slaughtered by the NL Central team or the NL East team.
