From SBN Bay Area:
They're sending hitters away to give the pitchers more money. The pitchers, so fond of being in San Francisco, gleefully take the money and don't realize that -- oh no! -- we gave up all our run support to get this delicious money!
Of course, you could always develop hitters and insert them into the starting lineup without dramahahahahahaha. Just kidding. This isn't "galaxyfutureball." C'mon, now. That's no way to find hitters.
Another Gift of the Magi scenario: I sell my positive vibes to buy the Giants a tandem bike for their utility infielders, but they sell one of their utility infielders after setting fire to my positive vibes! Oh, the irony!
