First, what would the Giants do with either Wang or Cano. Second, the Giants are in the NL West. Probably the worst division in baseball this year. Should the Giants have so much as a five game winning streak before the trade deadline, they would be in the hunt for the division and additional players. Schmidt will be here until the end of the season unless the woes continue. In which case, you should expect the Giants to start looking for left handers of all varieties (SP, RP & OF), as well as young speed. Alex Sanchez acquired today via WW is a start in that direction.
So yankee fans, keep dreaming - you can't win 'em all.
First of all, the Giants would PLAY Cano and Wang, considering the team is awful right now. They are young and good.
Second of all, keep dreaming Yankee fans? In case you didn't notice, there's a post by me a little while ago saying that I don't want Schmidt, I'd rather keep the prospects.
And by the way, don't count on the Giants going anywhere this year. It may be a bad division, but they are no better than the 4th best team in it.
