GIANTS SCOUTS FISHING IN FLORIDA

Are the San Francisco Giants getting serious about acquiring Ben Zobrist from Tampa Bay?
Well that’s what a very reliable source says and I am excited about the prospect. (see Chris Haft’s blog below)
 I am tired of the musical chairs we have had at 2nd base.  Let’s be honest, it’s not working!
Sure I was hoping Scutaro would be healthy but that was only after my hopes were dashed when Hicks, Panik and other “fill ins” failed to deliver.
Second base is the one position where we need help and I am looking forward to having a permanent starting player this season.  The statement about Zobrist possibly helping fill in for Pagan is also promising.

Giants’ interest in Zobrist could intensify

SAN FRANCISCO — With Thursday’s Trade Deadline approaching, the Giants’ interest in acquiring Ben Zobrist from the Tampa Bay Rays could be deepening. The Giants’ no-risk investment in second baseman Dan Uggla has appeared to be a no-reward venture so far. Uggla has gone hitless in eight at-bats spanning three games and committed two errors, including one that generated an unearned run, in Sunday’s 4-3 loss to the Dodgers. With Marco Scutaro unable to play everyday due to his lingering back issues and Joe Panik experiencing a rookie’s growing pains, the Giants again may have to look elsewhere for help at second base. Landing Zobrist would end that search. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.com reported that the Giants had two scouts watching Zobrist this past weekend. Zobrist also could help in the outfield if Angel Pagan’s recovery from a back ailment continues to stall. – Chris Haft
