As long as he doesnt decide to molest anyone else strapped to a gurney, I'd think the Giants have to keep in there for the season.

Gaudin's been a bit lucky but the uptick in K's is encouraging.  Given the park and division, I like him down the stretch.  On my watch list.

Man, didn't know this guy was doing this. Interesting. What's the story behind his success so far, anyone know? New pitch? Changed his delivery? etc...

I've wondered why he did that, considering below is a pic of his wife.  He has plenty to grope at home.

You know you pronounce his name "Go-Dahn"  In a french accent.  There's a joke involving gonads here that I can't quite think of.

I would assume he does. Giants could use him in the pen with Affeldt going down. There is also the possibility that Zito loses his spot and Gaudin slides into his spot

i mean gaudin's numbers as a starter are pretty sick right now...hard to believe they will just boot him back to the pen....Vog could easily have a set back as well.

Guadin was a pretty valuable arm for them while he was in the pen though. So that definitely carries some weight too, as to why they wouldn't be as hesitant to move him back there.

I was always surprised Gaudin has been so mediocre throughout his career. Because his stuff is actually not that bad. I can remember watching him and he'd look dominant at times and at other times he'd miss his spots horribly. Definitely a Jekyll and Hyde pitcher.

Maybe he's finally figured it out?

But the most important thing, I think, to take away from this thread is his wife is smoking hot.

I remember one evening in the pouring rain
And in my heart there was an aching pain
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Count me in as "started" him!!! I've heard a decent # of "experts" predict that his demise was imminent but I, of course, held out hope for the kid!!! Not gonna worry about dropping his arse just yet but I am already thinking of possible replacements.....
