The problem for the Giants........... I doubt anyone will take on Affeldts contract and give up anything. Same with Lincecum. Same with Pence. Same with them all.
Giants are screwed.
I honestly don't mind having a complete fire sale. Basically anyone not named poesy or madbum. No will take scuturo cause of his contract, same with Cain. But I would trade panda for some prospects, I'd trade pence too. No need for romo IMO he is not a long term closer. We still have poesy madbum and Cain should bounce back next year. Zito tim and pence off the books is about 60 mil free'd up should be able to reload this offseason. Plus if they tank they will get a high draft pick, may not mean much but high picks have served the giants well recently.
Its WAY too early to have a fire sale. Like I said, teams that are in rebuilding mode have fire sales, not teams coming off their 2nd WS title in 3 years.
For the Giants to panic now because of a bad 3 week stretch and sell off the team just a few months after winning a title? It sends a HORRIBLE message to the fans. It would be suicide for their business. Were on a 200+ game sellout streak. Telling everyone "we give up in mid July" in this weak of a division race? No chance.
We just signed Posey, Cain, and Bumgarner in the last year or so to longterm deals. We just signed prime/past prime players like Scutaro/Pagan/Affeldt to multi year deals. As bad as its looked thus far, were in win now mode. We cant just start rebuilding out of nowhere. They didnt spend all that money on guys like Posey just to have it all be wasted on rebuilding years.
