He's Our-Mando

Amidst rumors about his possibly being traded, Armando Benitez says it would be a mistake by the Giants if they were to unload him.

If we can't get a prospect or a proven player in return I say let's see if Our-Mando can back up his words. This may be just the kind of thing he needs to get his blood boiling enough to where he feels he has to prove to the Giants' organization that they made a good move in acquiring him.

Although there is something to consider that concerns me about Armando Benitez. It's that maybe Benitez is a warm weather pitcher. His career season was in Florida and he appears to be dealing this Spring (in the valley of the sun). AT&T park is in San Francisco, the city Mark Twain aptly described many years ago when he said, 'the coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco. '
