    There's been a bit of movement in the MLB, so I thought, since some of it has involved former Giants, I'd start this thread. Hopefully, things will pick up and we can see MLB games by early May.

    Here's the two stories that came out recently:

    This isn't a transaction involving a former Giant, but I've been watching some classic Giants' games recently while I work from home and went down the Baseball Reference rabbit hole, looking up how some former players did.

    Did you guy remember/realize that in 2013, Nate Schierholtz hit 21 homers for the Cubs, good for second most on their team??

    In 2020 that isn't a crazy number, it was still the deadball era 2.0 in 2013. I just found that stat crazy, not only the homers, but the fact that the Cubs gave him that many at bats! Then I looked at their record, and it made sense. Then I looked at the Giants' roster, and he also would have been 2nd on the team in homers.

    We probably complained about not having him at some point, but he did help us get Pence, who crushed it that year.

    Jesus, that really sucks for Joe. Good for Joe, though.

    I was probably complaining about not having him at that point. But didn't Nate later get busted on a drug test?

    He did?!

    All I remember about the controversy surrounding him was his beef with Boch and something with his brother.
