GIANT Concerns!

IMO, it is time for the Giants to cut bait. Trade Bonds before the trade deadline along with Benitez and Durham and pick a boat load of young talent. They don't have to go together, they just have to go. I am one of Bonds biggest fans (read my previous posts), but he does not have the legs to carry this team any longer. The guys surrounding him (aside from Alou, Schmidt & Vizquel) can't even carry themselves. This team is old, tired and the fans have lost interest. The fans coming to the park today aren't there for baseball. They have come to see a new park. And a few to see a Bonds milestone. There won't be many of those anytime soon. At the end of the season, the Giants will have a boat load of money and no one to spend it on. NOw is the time for the Giants to put the shoe on the other foot and take advantage of Barry. How will the fans feel after this season, if Barry walks away to another team, when they could have traded him for young talent.

God I hate Sabean's guts. He's made his name on basically 2 lucky trades and one big signing, namely acquiring Schmidt and Kent a while back, and of course the bonds signing.

But really he has run this team into the ground in recent years. The pierzynski trade aside (which I hated even at the time), what has he done for this team? NOTHING. He's ridden Bonds' coattails to several above average seasons.

I'll still keep going to the games because the stadium rocks, and the team is decently competitive, but Sabean needs to go.
