Here's what $2M gets a team in prospects these days. I still can't believe the trade happened. It's a Christmas miracle!

Not really shocking. Anyway, keep trading unproductive veterans for good pitching prospects, Sabes.

Barry Tompkins makes light of the Giants recent struggles by proposing a few solutions...

Michael Main is the PTBNL?

If so, that is quite a haul for the Giants. His value has fallen a bit, but he's a pretty nice piece and frankly, he'd be a top 10 prospect for us. Well done Sabes and co.

An Ode To Bengie by The Rolling Stones (Sung to the tune of 'Angie') Bengie, Bengie When will those clouds all disappear? Bengie, Bengie Where will it lead us from here? With no loving in our souls And no money in our coats You can't say we're satisfied But Bengie, Bengie You can't say we never tried Bengie, You're beautiful But ain't it time we said goodbye Bengie, I still love you Remember all those nights we cried? All the dreams we held so close Seemed to all go up in smoke Let me whisper in your ear Bengie, Bengie Where will it lead us from here? Bengie, don't you weep All your kisses still taste sweet I hate that sadness in your eyes But Bengie, Bengie Ain't it time we said goodbye? With no loving in our souls And no money in our coats You can't say we're satisfied But Bengie, I still love you, baby Everywhere I look I see your eyes There ain't a man that comes close to you Come on baby dry your eyes But Bengie, Ain't it... Ain't it good to be alive? Bengie, Bengie You can't say we never tried (Lyrics: Jagger-Richards, 1973, with a little help from my wife and I)

Fangraphs: Giants Should Trade for DeJesus

This article basically agrees with the groupthink: trading Molina was a good move that opens a spot in the outfield for an upgrade, with DeJesus being an ideal player, depending on the cost in prospects.

So Who is this Chris Ray guy, anyways?

He is apparently 28 years old, 6'3", 210 lbs, and had a really good season in 2006 with the Orioles (4-4, 2.73 ERA, 33 Saves in 38 Save Opportunities). '09 wasn't so hot, but since he's had Tommy John surgery, he's 2-0 in 2010 with a 3.41ERA in 31.2 IP. I'm optimistic...how about you?
