San Francisco Giants Quiet in Trade Rumors … so Far

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JULY 08: Jeff Samardzija /

We are just a little over a week away for the non-waiver trade deadline and the San Francisco Giants have been awfully quiet.

With the disatrous season the Giants are having, I expected them to be super aggressive at the trade deadline.

There is still a lot of time left, and we don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors. But right now there has only been mention of interest in Eduardo Nunez and Hunter Strickland.

I would be shocked if Nunez isn’t moved by the end of next week.

But the feeling I get from the front office is that they’re fine with staying put and making a run at 2018.

I’m sorry, but do you not see what the team in place is currently doing?

I’ll be the first to admit I was completely wrong about this team. I thought they had all of the pieces in place to win the National League West, and I couldn’t have been more wrong. This is the worse San Francisco Giants team I’ve seen in quite some time.

More from Around the Foghorn

I guess I kind of get where the front office is coming from, because there  is no way that this team should be this bad. My guess is that they’re hoping next year they actually play up to their potential.

That’s a lot of hope for a team that doesn’t seem to playing with the same fire they once did.

Going back to the trade deadline, my stance remains the same. I think the San Francisco Giants need to blow this thing up.

They should be aggressively shopping Hunter Pence, Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija, Matt Moore, Denard Span as well as Strickland and Nunez.

If the front office wants to look for close to major league ready talent in return to make this “rebuild” quick, then that’s fine. But this team is in desperate need of a makeover.

It’s been frustratingly quiet for the San Francisco Giants this week, but I’m really hoping that changes soon.

If they are aren’t a part of the future, they need to be traded now or in the offseason. The product on the field is not getting it done, and you can’t expect it to just get better next year doing the same thing.
