J.T. Snow used to be one of the best first basemen in the NL. Now, he is nowhere near that. But we're going after him because we have no choice! There just aren't very many free agent first basemen this season and the one big one, Paul Konerko, was kept in Chicago by the White Sox.

J.T. Snow will not be on the Giants as San Francisco has already gotten a replacement for him. The Red Sox want him because he is a lefty and can share time with Youkilis at first base. Snow was a great player back in 2000, winning a Gold Glove, hitting 19 HRs and knocking in 96 RBI. But now he is at the end of the line. He hit .275 last season. His OBP was .343. He had 4 HR and 40 RBI. Then again, Millar only had 9 HR and 50 RBI. Snow will probably give us some good pop off the bench when he isn't in and maybe Fenway will be a good place for him to regain some offensive form. But we still have to get him in order for this to happen.
