What are the chances that Heath Hembree is the Giants’ closer by mid season 2013? (include trade or injury possibility for Wilson)

A couple of comments:

1. I completely agree with you on Zach Wheeler. I saw him pitch for San Jose in Lake Elsinore early last year and it was the most dominant pitching performance I’ve seen in the Cal League. Admittedly, that’s not a huge sample size, but it includes Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum and Merkin Valdez when Valdez was still dominant. I support the trade because the Giants were in a position where they had to do something about the offense and try to make a run at a second title. If they had the choice between giving up Wheels vs Brown though, they made the wrong choice, IMO.

2. I really think you are oversimplifying the Cal League. Yes, there are some ridiculous hitter’s parks in that league, but San Jose is not one of them. I don’t think any serious Giants prospect watcher expects Brown to hit .350 in the majors, but he doesn’t have to. If he hits .280-.300 with decent on-base skills, 10-15 HR and 40 SB’s with plus D in CF, then he’s close to a 4 WAR player, which is a solid return on a #24 draft pick.

J.P. Arencibia and his .281 OBP as a 1B/DH type? Are you for serious?

Do you think Hayden Simpson will rebound?
