you must be a SF fan

Vlad is a free agent...he is not going to be traded. And today's trade does not mean that the Giants will not sign Vlad. Pierznyski made $365,000 in 2003. He is not going to put a huge dent in the 20mil the Giants have tenitively planned for spending on the free agent market.
Sorry if it sounds like I am going off on you ukjohn. You just hit my funny bone .
no problem, and by the way I knew Vlad was a FA, just accidentily put traded. I understand being up for your team, but I just don't see it. Vlad just doesn't seem to be a good fit for SF. Baltimore, NYY, and Montreal seem to be the best choices. You can just about put him anywhere though. Baltimore seems to be coming out of the running. NYY seems to be more interested in Sheffield. Montreal will love him, but do they have the money.
Just because you have money doesn't mean your going to get the top free agent. Doubt it, and I would still bet any $ amount on it.
