Jerome Williams to AAA

It's not exactly like Williams is that good when active anyway. Better to have him in the minors where he can't hurt your team. :-b

I would much rather see what Fopper can do, I remeber in 2003 when he showed those flashes of brilliance flurting with shut outs and getting like 10 strikeouts.

I think Foppert has more upside then Jerome or Noah. of course all the giant fans are in love with jerome williams and noah lowry around here and they don't think foppert is good.

its amazing how stupid they are.

Homers normally are stupid, they only like the guys who come out of nowhere and start doing great right away, instead of liking the top prospects who take time to slowly grow in the farm system

THEY SENT HIM DOWN TO AAA TO GET IN WORK BECAUSE AS OF NOW HE IS ONLY THEIR 5TH STARTER...THEY DON'T NEED A 5TH STARTER RIGHT NOW. THE DECISION WAS EVEN EASIER BECAUSE HE HAD A SHORTENED SPRING TRAINING DUE TO THE HEALTH OF HIS DAD BACK HOME IN HAWAII...HE NEEDS WORK. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHETHER OR NOT THE ORGANIZATION BELIEVES HE'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE TEAM RIGHT NOW.

And now back to your regular, meek posts. :-D

Christ...ten plus trivial posts doubting his abilities. Think for a moment...why did they send him down?

As for his upside, I think he can be a future #2/#3 starter. He's young enough and his stuff is pretty good. His command is special for a youngster.[/b]

Care to point out which Giants fans think Foppert isn’t that good? Or do you want to go ahead with your weak, broad generalization, insulting our collective intelligence?

His command? Are we talking about the same Jerome Williams here? The one that has't even managed to eke out a 2.00 K/BB ratio?

I don't know what Giants' fans think. But I will say that it's crazy that Foppert is behind Willliams and Lowry on the depth chart.

It's not crazy at all considering Foppert still isn't ready for the majors yet. You all seem to forget that he had surgery a little over a year ago. His control still isn't quite there yet and neither is his stamina. Once he's ready, he'll most likely be brought up to pitch out of the pen, or to replace Rueter in the rotation.

Barring any trades, the Giants should have a nice young nucleus of Williams, Lowry, Foppert, Cain, and Valdez (if they don't turn him into a closer) to go along with Schmidt in the next few years.

I had Jerome pegged as a nice sleeper, but he's just been too horrendous so far. I let him go, but I'll still be keeping an eye on him once he's brought back up. B-)

Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
