The Giants will never do the full tear down. that is only for the small market teams (like Chicago and Houston, LOL). And I don’t think the full tear down is needed for this team anyway. Just small sales.
I would love to keep Rodon, if he were interested, I just don’t get the sense he is. Not that it is a BAD fit, just he is in the MAKE MONEY stage of his career, and I think he will find bigger money from a contender elsewhere. No hard feelings, it just isn’t a match, time wise. Trade him for a bounty. He might be the biggest trade chip on the market if we make him available.
Webb stays. He is the new Cain/Timmeh/Bum. He can anchor the rotation for the next 5-6 years.
Doval stays. He is hard to watch right now, but I think we all see the STUD that is buried inside that emotional child.
Trade Belt. Won’t happen, because his trade value is next to zero right now. But if we can get a semi-decent haul, go for it.
We are “stuck” with Craw. But I don’t think this is a bad thing. He is a Giant for life. And while his D is falling fast, it is still passable. Keep him around and let him retire as a Giant. He is a borderline number retirement player (though probably not).
Trade Longo if you can (I think he has no trade rights, though). But he is likely done after this season.
Trade Yaz, Wood, Cobb, any bully arm…
Trade ANYONE except all the middle infielders FZ has accumulated. Can't have too many of those, especially the no hit/no field variety.
Unless offered something significant, I would oppose trading Belt. For all the frustration that he causes with his called strike three K's, he has won three WS with the Giants, and we ought to keep him until year end just for sentimental reasons. Put him in for defense (at which he is still quite good.) Until his hitting (average and power) show some signs of life, he needs to hit 7 or lower.
