Giants Prepare for 10-game Trip and Trade Deadline

Giants Prepare for 10-game Trip and Trade Deadline

Buoyed by their 5-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, the defending World Series Champions are simultaneously preparing for a 10-game trip as well as a big trade off ahead of the Friday trade deadline to enhance their chances of a fourth World Series title in six years this October.

Starting Friday, the Giants are getting ready to go head to head with the Texas Rangers in Arlington, Texas and then in Atlanta, Chicago etc before the All-Star break.  Then there is the possibility of a big trade to consider, apparently the management is already in talks with several quarters to see if they can pull out the longer end of the stick. According to Giants manager Bruce Bochy, “Really, if there was something that made sense and it was a major deal, it would get done. I believe that. But it takes both sides, as always. If you’re talking a major, front-line starter or position player, those talks are happening right now. I wouldn’t rule that out.”

Rumours are circulating that the team is on the lookout for a high-end starter to pair with Madison Bumgarner and Chris Heston. The team is willing to put top prospect and 2014 first round pic Tyler Beede or catcher Andrew Susac at the head of the trade if it means a good catch. The point is to increase their chances before October. Currently the Giants are standing at 10-2 after the All-Star break and 13-2 overall (43-43 on July 8).

According to general manager Bobby Evans, “Ultimately, whether there’s a deal to be made or not, it’s just too early to say—but we’re going to keep pressing and trying to understand what our options are and try to find fits. If there’s a good fit, we’ll make a deal.”  But given their current lineup, it could end without a trade as well; I guess we won’t really know till the 1 p.m. PT Friday deadline.
