keep in mind that winn is notoriously a strong 2nd half player but why in the world arent the giants selling. are they basing this on the hopes that barry comes back next year? do they really think that they can go anywhere this year?? i mean assuming they make the playoffs what is there rotation? schmidt, lowry, hennessey??? i struggled to come up with those names. and dont get me started on their bullpen. why does sabean have a job?

I know Foppert had the TJ done but he's still a high-end arm and should have fetched a lot more than Randy Winn.
Agree. Is there something about Foppert that he's no longer considered a part of the future such that he's dumped with another player for a middling LF with no outstanding traits (not a power hitter, decent speed, so-so defense, etc.).
Just seems like a really bad trade for the Giants. I'm curious as to what SF fans must think.
