With the upcoming Trade Deadline looming this Friday, I figure that we'll see more and more trades, rumors, and other bits of information. With that in mind, I thought it would be helpful to compile all of the separate rumors and speculation into one large thread. This way, we won't have 100 RYAN GARKO threads or 100 OMG HEYMAN TWITTER UPDATE threads. And, it's a good place to consolidate a bunch of the trade deadline discussion.
Maybe get this thing going, and rec it so that it goes to the top? Sound like a good idea? If not, mods nuke this post. Or, maybe it an open make fun of xanthan thread (I hear he lives in a basement).
Some Giants-related rumors from today, Tuesday July 28, 2009:
Giants NOT interested in Roy Halladay @ Mercury News - Baggs
"We don't want to deplete our assets when there's another route we need to go," Sabean said. "Simply put, (Jonathan) Sanchez and Sadowski have to step up. Each day Randy doesn't pick up a baseball, the longer it looks like he won't be back any time soon. We should have a lot more information on him in a couple of days."
Giants trade for Garko @ SFGate.com - David White
"You don't acquire a player like this to sit him," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He's a veteran, proven hitter who's going to provide some punch. You get a bat like this, it makes us a better lineup."
