Found December 05, 2011 on San Francisco Giants Baseball (SF Giants...:
Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports says (via twitter) sources tell him and Ken Rosenthal that the San Francisco Giants appear to have submitted a bid on shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima.   John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle sent out a followup tweet saying the report that the Giants apparently submitted a bid on shortstop Nakajima is not accurate.   Nakajima hit .297/.354/.433 with 16 homers in 2011. Brandon Crawford recently told me all the shortstop rumors don’t bother him. Here is another one to add to the shortstop rumors. Would you like to see the Giants sign Nakajima? ~King of Cali (Steven) ———-——–—-——-——––———————-—————————————————- You can follow SF Giants Rumors Facebook page for more Giants updates!
