Great move for the Giants
Think of all those games that they lost last year cause of Herges
Herges was terrible, but I think he will be much better as a middle reliever. He has proven that he can do that job with the Dodgers and the Giants the year before last. Hermanson was an excellent closer for about a month, and was doing well as a starter before that, but then sucked it up and blew several crucial save opps. I think he will be much better as a middle reliever or setup man.
I think for once, the Giants have picked up the players they need!
Herges performed decently during the tail end of the season after they moved him out of the closer role, they improved their defense
with vizquel (their defense probably cost them almost as much as not having a closer) I'd like to see them add one more starter... they have a great crop of young pitchers but they still are probably a year away... and if they add a bat, go for the big guns, none of this steve finley nonsense... Barry will be done after the 06' season
and they proved they could score runs last season without protection for Barry behind him
