In response to dgalehouse's comment:
I would have to think that we could have picked up a comparable pitcher to Peavy without giving up Iglesias. In fact , we already had Workman. 4.00 plus ERA guys are not too hard to find. Iglesias has been downgraded on this forum ( in my opinion by those who want to defend the trade ) , but the bottom line is that he is a brilliant defensive shortstop, did , in fact, hit .300 for the year and was the runner up in the Rookie of the year voting. I would love to see us try to get him back this off season. Highly doubt that it will happen. At any rate, I think it is safe to say that around baseball, he is considerably more highly regarded than is Escobar or Hembree.
Stabbed by Foulke.
a) Iglesias was not much higher rated as a prospect than Escobar has been.
b) We got 2 pitchers.
c) It's not an apples to apples comparison anyway, because we had Peavy under contract for 1.33 years, the Giants only have him for .33 years.
