There is five days left till the trading deadline, and the San Francisco Giants have yet to make a move. The Dodgers pulled the trigger on a trade for Hanley Ramirez, so Giants fans are hoping Brian Sabean will work his magic and counter with a move himself.
Any site/paper/article that mentions the Giants is talking about the team looking for bullpen help (they do need), but this offense is really in need of a bat or two. We know Sabean might be a bit gun shy after trading Zack Wheeler for Carlos Beltran.
Infielder Pablo Sandoval has been getting treatment for the past two days on his strained hamstring. Friday the Giants will take another look at him, and see if he needs a trip to the DL or not.
I tried not to mention Tim Lincecum in this post, but how can I not? Timmy tossed 4.2 innings and allowed 5 earned runs. He was headed in the right direction, and now it’s another step back. The Giants aren’t in the market for a starting pitcher (so they say), but I don’t think they should rule it out just yet.
