Here's why Sabean should be fired

Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman has a fascinating article in this week's issue, polling 14 GMs as to the five players they would most like to have -- absent any budget constraints. Jose Reyes leads the list, followed by Papelbon, A-Rod, Verlander, Mauer, Sizemore, Santana, Pujols, Jeter, Suzuki and Utley. Others getting votes -- Beltran, Mariano Rivera, Vlad, Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Haren, Putz, Saito, Russell Martin, Beckett, Fielder, Yadier Molina, Halladay.

What's my point? There's not a single Giant on the 23-player list, which consists mostly of players under 30. Not even Matt Cain or Tim Lincecum. It's clear that Brian Sabean's skills as a GM have become the laughingstock of the rest of MLB.

Ah, that's your typical east coast bias, just look at those players. The only one's I'd trade straight up for Timmy are A-Rod, Pujols, and Miguel Cabrera. Russell Martin? Puhlease.
