Guillen not an option for Giants

Posted on: October 26, 2010 1:32 am
Jose Guillen Not only is Jose Guillen not on the Giants' playoff roster, he's not even with the team, general manager Brian Sabean told the San Jose Mercury News ' Andrew Baggarly .

The Giants acquired Guillen in a trade with the Royals on Aug. 13, and Guillen played in 42 games for the Giants, hitting .266/.317/.375 with three home runs. He was not on the playoff roster in either of the first two series of the postseason.

Guillen would have been an option at designated hitter, but instead the Giants will likely use Pat Burrell and Pablo Sandoval.

• Another interesting note -- Barry Zito is officially the world's best-paid batting practice pitcher. Zito, who earned $18.5 million this season, threw live batting practice to Giants hitters on Monday.

• Bochy hinted that he'd likely keep Juan Uribe at third base and Edgar Renteria at shortstop against the Rangers.

Guillen not an option for Giants

My last post on Guillen got a cheeseball rating. Now y'all find out out he's being investigated for PEDs. As I stated before, nobody likes the guy. I'll take my arbitrary zero rating now.

Guillen not an option for Giants

Nobody likes the guy. San Francisco was the 11th team he played for in 14 years.
