My Newfound Respect...

For the last couple seasons I've complained just as much as the next Giants fan about inaction on the trade front, gone through the rosterbation fantasies, and wondered why the front office isn't more proactive in wheeling and dealing.

I just joined a 30 team fantasy league in which we're given the team and farm system of our choice, and I of course chose the Giants.  We put up a trading block and a list of our untouchable players, and of course my untouchable list consisted of Lincecum, Cain, Bumgarner, Alderson, Posey, and Villalona, while Sanchez is advertised as available for the right price.  Now, every time I get into a trade discussion with another GM, I get the following line:

"Are Bumgarner, Alderson, or Cain available?"

I can't discuss a trade involving any other Giants without those guys being brought up.  The White Sox GM (who just acquired a smattering of Mariners prospects) offered me Aaron Poreda, Phillipe Aumont, Carlos Triunfel, Tyler Flowers, and pitcher Dexter Carter for MadBum and Alderson, and I find myself seriously considering a lucrative offer like that.

That said, I have newfound respect for the Giants front office for having to deal with every team inquiring about players they've made clear they're not interesting in trading.
