Maybe Brandon Crawford WILL be needed!
Yesterday I wrote about why the Giants should make a trade for Mets shortstop Jose Reyes. And I suggested in the trade package they include shortstop prospect Brandon Crawford because, and I quote, "slick fielding young shortstop Brandon Crawford won’t be needed."
Well today, Crawford made his big league debut and hit a go ahead grand slam that made a winner out of Tim Lincecum.
If he can keep hitting like that, maybe the Giants can save their prospects. Then again a grand slam in your first game a star does not make.
Just ask Daniel Nava.
Either way, a nice "welcome to the big leagues" for Mr. Crawford. You will notice in this picture, Miguel Tejada looks really happy for Mr. Crawford.
Look out Miguel. He might have your job before long.
