While I thought about the possibility of Erik Bedard returning to the Baltimore Orioles, I took some time to evaluate a player who recently passed through waivers. Though Andres Torres has not torn the cover off the ball, he has done about what most educated fans could expect. The Mets put him in a tough position, making him the everyday centerfielder when Torres was more qualified to be a forth OF.
My initial thought was Torres could return to the San Francisco Giants, where he spent the past couple of years. Torres excelled in 2010, and despite his 2011 struggles, he was well liked in the organization and in the clubhouse and was a fan favorite. Add in the fact that Melky Cabrera will miss the rest of the regular season due to his 50 game ban for the use of PEDs, my answer became “Why not?”
Its not that the Giants do not want him back. I just think the team has its sights on an OF that can impact the team a little more than...
