DeRosa Talks with Giants Intensifying
According to Jon Heyman over at CNNSI.com, the talks between the Giants and outfielder/infielder/DH/pitcher/catcher Mark DeRosa have intensified. The Giants had made DeRosa a two year offer prior to Christmas, and apparently DeRosa has, at the bare minimum, called them back. A signing can only be assumed to be imminent, but other teams may still be in the hunt. The Mets, Red Sox, Yankees, Mariners, Cubs, and every other team that has an outfield opening has to be assumed to be lurking with their wallets wide open according to the basic principles of sports journalism.
