Now that the trade deadline has come and gone, and we know the San Francisco Giants didn’t part ways with anyone at the deadline. It’s time to start kicking the tires on which players the Giants should try to bring back in 2014. 

There’s mutual interest in Javier Lopez returning to the Orange & Black in 2014. We know the Giants want Hunter Pence back and he’s made it clear that he wants to stay. Let’s just hope they can work out the years and dollars.
Pitcher Chad Gaudin said yesterday afternoon that he wants to re-sign with the Giants and stay a few years, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter).
Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area says (via Twitter) she spoke with Tim Lincecum about staying with San Francisco after the trade deadline, “Reassuring, very important to stay a Giant. I believe in keeping the core together,” says Lincecum.
In the upcoming series against the Rays in Tampa, the Giants have listed Madison Bumgarner and Lincecum as the game one and two starters. They listed “TBA” for the third game of the series. We may have seen Barry Zito‘s last start as a Giant reports Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com (via Twitter).

    time to move on from zito; thank you, barry, for some clutch games in the playoffs!

  • David says:

    Why wouldn’t the G’s start Zito during the rest of the season? Last postseason, Zito earned all the excess dollars he’s been paid by the Giants. But if the Giants want to contend, they’ll need to replace him with someone better.

  • Anthony says:

    Re-sign Timmy; Lopez; Gaudin; and Pence.

    The season isn’t over yet and we could still turn this around especially with Vogelsong coming back.

    The bull-pen is finally healthy.

    Even if this season doesn’t work out; when Pagan comes back we will be back into contention.

  • Mark says:

    Zito has a clause in his contract that kicks in after so many innings pitched. I am sure that is why he will be sitting.
