    Giants having a fire sale?

    Jayson Stark said on Mike & Mike this morning that the Giamts are looking to unload 10 players before the season starts. One of those mentioned was our old buddy, Rich Aurilia. That's gotta be nice for Giants fans to know their front office has thrown in the towel even before the season starts.

    I think dealing those 10 would make the team better. They have no shot right now. At least 10 new bodies won't know they are supposed to lose and might play loose enough to make some noise.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    adult crap is universally disgusting, but there are those that find baby crap to be charming.

    The Giants have 10 players that other teams would want?

    I find that difficult to imagine.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    if the Giants don't want 'em then why would someone else ... unless of course they want to get rid of Lincecum.

    I've always liked Randy Winn and I think he'd be a nice little player in GABP but he'd be an expensive 4th outfielder for the Reds.

    No, they have 10 players they want to get rid of i.e. Rich Aurilia. Stark thinks they are going to have a difficult time doing that. You think?

    Did they mention any pitchers of note?

    Looking at their roster, I didn't realize how craptastic Aurillia was last year. Wow, he didn't even hit lefthanders. Krivsky should be applauded for running from that guy. I remember last year several people in the media bemoaning the loss of the "clutch hitting" Aurillia.

    Outside of about 3 or 4 guys, I don't know anybody you would want.

    Is Sabean the guy you'd want overseeing a tear down?
