6.29: Ken Rosenthal - Giants made a run for DeRosa
Foxsports.com National Baseball Writer Ken Rosenthal says the Giants were in the bidding until the end for Cleveland's Mark DeRosa. He also names a few players that still make sense for San Francisco.
I'm joined now by Ken Rosenthal from foxsports.com. -- senior baseball writer joins me from Baltimore I -- how are you this weekend. Let's just jump right into the Cardinals are gonna say in this series just acquired Mark DeRosa from the Cleveland Indians were the Giants and play for mark Derozan all as far as you know and who the Giants look at that at that bad you and I've been talking about for the last two months. The Giants definitely were played for Derosa Greg right to the end. But obviously the Cardinals came up with a piece actually two pieces that the Indians preferred they got the player. The question is going -- haunt the Giants until the deadline who are they going to get. Nick Johnson to me from the nationals still viable solution. Matt Holliday would be a viable solution though I'm not sure the Giants want to take on that kind of payroll and EPA's price. So right now it's a little unclear. Where they're going to go for that that. Or exactly who's going to be out there. Because so many teams are still in contention. Not willing to trade pieces just yet what are you heard about Adam Dunn might he be somebody that Giants go after. Adam Dunn is a little problematic for the Giants only because he signed for next year at ten million. And I'm not sure they wanna take on that money for the following season. Does he makes sense for them. Any hitter with a heartbeat makes sense for them. But nationals are gonna want a good amount for Adam Dunn as well because he's signed for next year and actually means quite a bit to their offense which is pretty good.
