Is Sabes gunshy to make a big trade?

Now we can debate whether or not the Giants should make any moves at this point, but I'm wondering if Sabes is afraid to make a trade regardless of the situation of the team. Because when you think about it, since the trade of Joe Nathan, the Giants haven't really made a lot of trades. The ones they have made were either really poor choices like Shea Hillenbrand, or dumping crappy players to other teams like Matt Morris for Rajai Davis or Mark Sweeney for Travis Denker.


I'm of the school of thought that the Giants aren't really in a great position to go after what they really need because the players that would be attractive to other teams either are too important a piece to the big club (Cain, Sanchez, Lincecum, Wilson) or they are top 10 prospects in all of baseball and really shouldn't be traded away because the team is still in a rebuilding stage. So because of that, I can't really blame him for not pulling the trigger on moves that probably won't be a big upgrade or help the Giants, but also if the Giants in the next few years reach a position where they are legit contenders, they're going to need to have a GM capable of pulling the trigger to improve the team.

So why do you feel they haven't made any moves?

Does Sabes and Co. see this team as overachieving and they don't want to mortgage what could be a bright future for a shot at the wildcard going head to head vs better teams?

Do the Giants just not have the horses to pry good players away from these other teams?

Is Sabes afraid to make a move with his job on the line despite already having turned in a season good enough to get a contract extension (in the organization's eyes, not so much the fans).So perhaps he's playing it safe?

Or do you think Sabes and Co are happy with the current players/minor leaguers and are content to try to contend with them and look to improve the offense/back end rotation in the winter?
