We are absolutely atrocious, hopefully we can get a young bat with some power for Lopez
I dont think anybody wants to give up young power for an old RP.
Who's a rental to boot.
Need to trade: Pence, Timmy, Lopez, Romo and Scutaro.
Bring the kids up, no reason to not blow this thing up.
No reason? How about paying customers? We have the longest current sellout streak in baseball, and just won the WS. Im all for selling off a couple players for the right package of prospects, but "blowing the team up" is ridiculous and short-sighted.
The Giants would essentially be flipping both middle fingers at the fans, who have been selling out for years now.
I dont think we trade Lincecum. We have no replacement. Were also about to get even thinner at SP this offseason, and trading him away will break trust. He probably wont be interested in coming back then.
Romo isnt going to get us as much as hes worth, so theres no point there. Scutaro and Lopez are both old, have crap contracts, and wouldnt get us much of anything either.
Pence is the only guy I could see being worth it. But then now we have empty holes at LF AND RF next year?
We just gave Posey and Cain HUGE contracts. We arent going to be interested in rebuilding for half of those deals.
Trade Pence if the return is right, get a high draft slot next year and inject some talent into the system, make some smart offseason signings, and hope for better health next year.
