These three guys aren’t going anywhere. And if you think they are, you’re delusional. Of course the Giants would net absolute bonkers hauls for these guys, but they aren’t in need of a “full-nuclear” type rebuild at the moment. They need a youth-movement type re-tool around the guys like these three. So no they aren’t going anywhere. But just to make sure you get it, we lay out each three of the untouchables.
Buster Posey, C, 30
Buster ain’t havin’ in. Especially the trade talk. There is zero to no trade-talk for Buster Posey outside of the lone rangers “speaking for all Giants fans” and saying that Buster should be traded for his lack of activity in the dumb, pointless, stupid, immature, and reckless brawl that took place last week. Stupid people have some stupid takes on this, and the biggest one is that Buster should be traded or DFA’d for his lack of involvement. Truth is, Buster is likely never going to play for another team. So this conversation is over.
Brandon Crawford, SS, 30
B-Craw is a back to back gold-glove winner, and a silver slugger winner at shortstop. He’s not going anywhere. The Giants have the best, and most consistent defensive shortstop in baseball, and he’s not going to get traded. His bat hasn’t been as good this year, but it seems to be coming around in the recent games. Still, a down start at the plate for him is nowhere near “trade-worthy.”
Madison Bumgarner, LHP, 27
Ha. No. Mad-Bum isn’t going anywhere folks.
