Morosi says the Giants are talented enough to win the division without Lincecum, and with the non-waiver trade deadline coming up, it’s time for GM Brian Sabean to scour the market for a starting pitcher.
Morosi also points out that Lincecum and Barry Zito account for more than $37 million in salary this year, so it won’t be feasible to trade them. However, he does believe the Giants need to add another starting pitcher before they’re just left with three trustworthy starters.
He’s not talking about big name pitchers that cost a boat load of money and prospects, like Zack Greinke, Cole Hamels or Matt Garza. He’s suggesting pitchers like Milwaukee’s Marco Estrada, Seattle’s Jason Vargas or San Diego’s Clayton Richard.
