Of course there are many big questions swirling around the team, primarily regarding trades. Tonight I have some questions on different issues.
First, do you think some of the guys rumored to be traded will turn it around in the last 2 months? If you look at the last 2-3 weeks many of our players on the trade rumor list (Street, Ellis, Crosby) have been off. Does anyone think these guys will impove once they know their status?
Second, will Daric Barton be back before the September call-ups? The last report (SF Chronicle) suggested he would be back on the next road trip. I am wondering if they will give August to Sweeney and Chavez as kind of auditions for next season.
Third, how much longer will the team keep sending Patterson and Conrad out there. I would hate to see them continue to get embarrassed out there and continue to cripple the offense. I would imagine that with Thomas back, Cust will have to play LF. So I suppose Patterson has tomorrow and maybe one or two in Boston.
Fourth, will Buck make it back this year?
Fifth, Do you think the team will bring back Thomas or Mike Sweeney next season?
Sixth, barring any trades do you think the rotation will stay the same for the rest of the year?
Thanks for your thoughts.
