Yesterday on the Felipe Alou pre-game on the radio (thanks XM), Alou alluded to his defensive deficiencies, but thought they could help him there. He also mentioned that SF knew he had had issues in Detroit as well, and that with the Latin players on the team and him being a Latin manager, they felt this was a good place for him.

However, as Lou does not seem to be able to stand mental mistakes, I can see this as being more the reason that the Rays released him - not to spite Lou.

I'm still curious as to what the role will be for him and how this will affect Ellison.

Hopefully it won't hurt Ellison's time ... but really fast guys who hit .330 tend to find their ABs somewhere. With all of his drawbacks -- and there are many -- Sanchez had either the highest or secoond highest OPS on the Rays. Hard to discount that.

Anyone surprised the yanks didn't sign him? I mean, he's not that good, but when you're running Tony Womack out to left, and batting him second, he's an upgrade.
I'm back. Sorta.

Not really. I like Womack better, despite what the numbers may say.

Keep in mind the Giants expected opening day roster was supposed to be Bonds, Grissom & Alou. All are or will be over 35 after this season. Bonds has temporarily lost his spot to injury, Marquis would like to say the same, but no, he lost his spot to aging legs. Alou is heating up and has earned his right to stay. Ellison has taken over nicely for Marquis Grissom as a rookie. But he too needs days off. Pedro Feliz is no outfielder, and it has cost him at the plate IMO. With Alfonzo going down, it's probably a blessing is disguise.
Durham can't run, Vizquel is definetly trying, so, speed is needed.

Welcome to San Francisco Alex Sanchez. Stay out of Burlingame.
