Giant moves If the San Francisco Giants reach the playoffs this season, it would be for the first time since 2003, ending the longest postseason drought in the National League West. But the credit probably won't go to their vaunted starting rotation. Instead the team MVP is likely to be General Manager Brian Sabean , who has made a series of deft moves this summer that have allowed the Giants to keep pace with the surprising San Diego Padres. In May, he signed slugger Pat Burrell , who had been released by the Tampa Bay Rays.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Craig Monroe's three-run homer with two out in the ninth capped a five-run rally, then Justin Morneau hit a leadoff homer in the 10th to lift Minnesota to a 9-8 victory Wednesday night and stun the Kansas City Royals with their 10th straight loss. Afterward, Royals outfielder Jose Guillen let loose in the clubhouse a profanity-filled denunciation of unnamed teammates.

Free-agent outfielder Jose Guillen told a wire service Tuesday that he had agreed to a two-year contract with the Angels for about $6 million, though General Manager Bill Stoneman would neither confirm nor deny the report. "When we have an announcement to make, we'll make it," Stoneman said. The Angels could be waiting for Guillen to pass a physical to confirm the deal. Adam Katz, Guillen's agent, did not return phone calls.

If it's a war of words Jose Guillen wants, the Washington National right fielder will not find a willing combatant in the Angels, who took the high road in response to Guillen's hit-and-run shot at Angel Manager Mike Scioscia, whom Guillen likened Wednesday night to "a piece of garbage."

Washington National outfielder Jose Guillen has a wrist injury that could require surgery and sideline him for three months. Guillen was examined early Friday by a hand specialist, who diagnosed swollen tendons and a damaged tendon in the left wrist. Guillen felt discomfort during batting practice Wednesday and later told the team he thought he had hurt himself during weight training. The doctor recommended surgery, which would probably keep Guillen out of the lineup until June.

The more the Angel offense sputtered in the first two games of the playoffs, the deeper the sense of remorse Jose Guillen seemed to have for his actions that led to the Angel left fielder's Sept. 26 suspension for the remainder of the season. "It's been tough to watch," Guillen said in an interview with ESPN that aired before the Angels lost to the Red Sox on Friday. "They need something. I think they're missing something." You think? Guillen hit .

The Angels gave away picture frames Sunday, sponsored by a group of local hospitals. In the space designed for fans to insert a picture, the hospital ad read, "We want you to be the picture of health." Better not stick a team photo in that frame. The Angels won another game and lost another player to injury Sunday, with left fielder Jose Guillen wrenching his right knee and ankle in an 8-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in front of 41,410 at Angel Stadium.

Paul Lo Duca just missed. Jose Guillen got just enough. Guillen, the former Angel, hit a two-out home run in the top of the 10th inning to give the Washington Nationals a 3-2 victory over the Florida Marlins. The Nationals were two outs away from winning in the ninth, but Carlos Delgado's first home run in a Marlin uniform tied the score at 2-2. Lo Duca nearly won it for Florida two batters later, but his drive to left bounced off the top of the scoreboard and stayed in the park.

The Boston Red Sox went into two-minute-drill mode at baseball's winter meetings Monday, holding a series of meetings with teams -- including the Angels and Dodgers -- in a last-ditch effort to trade enigmatic slugger Manny Ramirez. Meanwhile, Angels General Manager Bill Stoneman is believed to have met Monday night with Atlanta GM John Schuerholz to discuss a trade for Adam LaRoche, the Braves' 27-year-old first baseman who hit .285 with 32 home runs and 90 runs batted in last season.

Jose Guillen, one of the most polarizing figures in recent Angel history, returns to Angel Stadium tonight for the first time since his stormy departure at the end of last season. Guillen, who early last year questioned Angel pitchers for not protecting the hitters -- in his opinion -- later set off a firestorm when he flung his helmet and batting gloves in the dugout after being taken out for a pinch-runner Sept. 25.

Jose Guillen says "Trust me," and intends those two words to be reassuring. Or defiant. Even confrontational. He says them enough, so they've come to suit the moment, the circumstance, the object of his persuasion, his eyes too narrow to interpret, his grin too fleeting to be sincere.
