All our eggs in a handbasket to hell

Dear Diary,

I was thinking about Brian Sabean's tenure with the Giants and was trying to think of a short and compact way of summing it up.  

Well, voila.  Brian Sabean: He put all of his eggs in a handbasket to hell.  (By the way, that's the name of a song I'm writing [not about Brian Sabean but about us as a species])

Sabes's tenure consists of two parts.  The first is he put all of his eggs in one basket.  The Giants were obviously focusing all of their attention on the time they had with Barry Bonds.  Thus the farm system and the draft went by the wayside.

The second part is, the basket was the handbasket part in the saying "going to hell in a handbasket."  Brian Sabean didn't do a particularly good job of putting all of his eggs in a basket.  They never went all out to actually maximize the time they had with a dominant Barry Bonds.  The decision to not go after Vlad Guerrero being exhibit A.  It's worth noting that the Giants had the single most dominant player in the game (by a mile) and only went to one world series.  It's also worth noting that in 2003 and 2004, the Giants not only had the single most dominant offensive force in the game but also had one of the top five pitchers in the game.  It's criminal that the Giants weren't able to win multiple world series.

Anyways, I know it's not particularly relevant to anything at the moment.  But anything to not focus on the upcoming season....
