Why isn't Alfonzo on the Block?!

Giants GM Brian Sabean said Friday that he isn't willing to trade Edgardo Alfonzo to the Yankees or any other team.
Sabean said the Yankees hadn't called about Alfonzo, but he still felt the need to comment on the rumors. "The Yankees, in our estimation, would not be willing to give up whoever we need at the major league or even minor league level" as a fair return for Alfonzo, Sabean said. Source: San Francisco Chronicle


I was getting really excited about Boone's injury perhaps opening up a gate for the Giants to get rid of Alfonzo. Although I did not think that there was ever a spectacular chance for a trade to be completed, I thought that the lack of interest would be displayed by the Yankees, not the Giants.

Alfonzo is making way too much money. Even if he had a great October, so did J.T. (in 2003) and that did not turn his career around. What hurts even more is that there are still some decent free agents on the market that could be great aquisitions for the Giants.

And, who cares if the Yankees do not have a ton of great players to offer in return of Alfonzo? It seems like it would be great just to get rid of his contract, especially with Feliz's potential to provide power in a less than powerful (on average) lineup.

Where do you think Sabean is coming from on this one?

He's just pulling a "Boras" by posturing his man as unavailable in order to get more for him!

The Gaints need Alfonzo. Don't forget he was coming off major back injury and moved to one of the most pitcher friendly stadiums in the league. He really started coming on at the end of last season, and all I know is that he was the only one besides Bonds I was comfortable with coming to the plate during the playoffs. I have faith Sabs knew what he was doing when he gave him that contract.
