The San Francisco Giants are one week away from the trade deadline, and all they have to show for their efforts is Pablo Sandoval playing third base in Sacramento. We decided to lay out a few trades the Giants should make before the July 31st deadline.

The San Francisco Giants were somewhat active immediately after the all-star break. We heard both Hunter Strickland, and Jeff Samardzija‘s name on the “outgoing” list multiple times, as well as Eduardo Nunez. We even heard an out of left field (ha) rumor for Giancarlo Stanton. Things have significantly cooled down as of now, and the Giants seem to be on the outside looking in. But not so fast.

There is still plenty of time for the Giants to make a few moves. The market has really begun to get set for the Giants, and it’s clear it’s time to get moving. The Giants don’t show any signs of getting better so far, and that doesn’t bode well headed into next season. It would be one thing if this was just a terrible start and the Giants were playing well over their last 20 or so games. But they still lost a series with the Padres this week, and they’ve been “healthy” really since the all-star break. So it’s time to make moves. And with that, we get started
