Some rumors are head-scratchers, other rumors sound right because they were pre-ordained by the whichever mystical forces you believe in. This one is the latter. ESPN Deportes is reporting that the Giants are in talks with free-agent shortstop Alex Gonzalez.:

Alex González me dijo que no jugara con El Caracas.

Sorry, that says he won't play for the Caracas. Here's the real tweet:

Rather than spend the next 70-80 words telling you what you hopefully already know about Alex Gonzalez (he's everything you'd expect in a Brian Sabean shortstop acquisition), why don't we go Oprah on eachother and tell us how this news/rumor makes us feel? My first feeling: JOY -- Reyes and/or Rollins are probably out of the question for the Giants now, and it would be weird if either landed there, wouldn't it?
