I am a die hard Giants fan for the past 30 years. I remember going with my Dad and braving those cold nights at the Stick, watching the teams of the late 80's and early 90's having some success and even had the good fortune of being able to bat boy a few times. I love the Giants with all my heart. I come to this website because I enjoy reading other people's opinion about my beloved team. Even if I disagree, I am not naive enough to always think I am right. Today though, I am actually disgusted with a lot of what I read. People, please calm down. Some of these post I read actually makes me scared for Sabean. Of course there is a lot of sarcasm, but the criticism for making the trade for Sanchez is unreal. A TRADE CANNOT BE JUDGED IMMEDIATELY. Reserve judgement for this trade in a few years. Right now the simple fact is Sabean acquired an All-Star, a previous batting champion, and filled a HUGE hole in the line-up. Had Sabean not made this move, there would of been criticism for just standing pat. The Giants are a better team today, no matter how Tim Alderson turns up in the future. Who knows what he'll do. Let's be excited for what we have now. Be proud of the fact our franchise doesn't sit on our ass and do don't do anything. At the very least the Giants are proactive and are trying to make the playoffs. I am sure I will receive a lot of criticism from all the Sabean haters out there, but I for one am thrilled that the Giants are in the playoff hunt, and added an All-Star second basemen today.
