The glass-half-full crowd, the glass-half-empty crowd, and the glass-is-filled-with-liquid-4th-outfielders crowd can all agree on one thing: This is probably not the roster with which the Giants start the 2008 season. There will be moves. Minor? Major? That's still a guessing game, but we can all agree that something will happen.
I used to think that the Giants were going to make minimal changes. A Feliz here, a Tony Clark there - moves that I wouldn't necessarily agree with, but moves that really wouldn't make much of a difference.
I've seen the light. I've figured out what Brian Sabean is going to do:
To the Reds:
To the Giants:
The A's wouldn't really want Lowry - their rebuilding plan is a three-year plan, if not more. Of course, Lowry straight up for Street is unfair. So the Giants would have to kick in a young outfielder to the A's. Lewis would compete for the spot vacated by Nick Swisher.
Open roster move prediction thread. You don't have to name specific players; it could be as simple as "Sabean makes Dave Roberts disappear." Or you could concoct a frightening three-way trade scenario that trades one of our more marketable trade chips for something that should be a luxury on a complete team.
edit: Because I'm a moron, I didn't notice that Calvin Medlock is now in the Tampa Rays' system. I picked three non-elite prospects from the Reds' system at random to make a point, not because I thought they would be specific players that would get a deal done. Instead of Medlock, I choose...uh...Misael DeJesus.
