SF Giants Rumors

Crasnick – Cubs/Giants Discussed Rowand/Fukudome Deal

By Bryan Rose

And by “discussed”, I’m assuming “dead”…but at it’s encouraging to see that they’re attempting to move Rowand.

"The Giants and Cubs discussed a Rowand-for-Fukudome trade, said a BB source. A classic bad-contract, change-of-scenery deal."

And for the opposing fans who quickly vomit at the thought, I suggest you look at my prior examination of Rowand’s stats. Yes, he’s been downright awful with the stick in black and orange, but outside of AT&T Park…he’s been incredibly serviceable.
