Jason Bartlett Rumors

Looks like the Jason Bartlett talks have begun to heat up.... and the Giants are one of the teams on the radar (along with the Cardinals, Padres and Orioles). The Rays are reportedly seeking bullpen help in return for Bartlett who will probably be replaced by Reid Brignac at SS.

Rumor has it that one of the deals tossed around is Santiago Casilla and a minor league pitcher for Bartlett.

I think that would be an ok deal for the Giants. Seems a bit much for a 30 year old SS who doesnt play D.

A little more on Bartlett; he posted a 1.5 WAR (1.8 off and -0.3 def), which was better than JJ Hardy, Derek Jeter, Elvis Andrus and Orlando Cabrera. He also has much more offensive potential than he showed in 2010, coming of an all-star season in 2009. He really is the best of the bunch when it comes to available SS.
