No time to write, so I pass the baton to Josh with a comment starter: Which Giants will make it through waivers and be available in trade? The problem is that the most attractive players in trade are at the end of their contract, so there wouldn't be any Randy Myers shenanigans going on. Schmidt would be claimed in .3 seconds, and Durham not too far after.
'Tis a shame. Of course, the Giants are right in the race. Technically.
