The Giants are looking to trade Ramon Ramirez or Jeremy Affeldt

Ramon Ramirez

Rosenthal says that the Giants are trying to trade either Ramon Ramirez or Jeremy Affeldt. He says it’s for payroll space and flexibility. Which makes one wonder why in the hell they picked up Affeldt’s $5 million option after the season was over, but I suppose that’s between Brian Sabean and his god.

Ramirez would be an attractive pickup for someone. He struck out 8.7 batters per nine innings last season and isn’t expensive. Affeldt has his uses too, but his current salary seems way too much for a guy like him.

Still, some trades would be nice right now. I think I’ve had enough “this team is kicking the tires on that guy” posts for a while.  Do something, people.

    Sabean might be the most frustrating gm in baseball.

    Now that 5 Million option is even more hilarious.
