Why Sabean should be fired, version 78

Just reading about Khalil Greene getting signed by the Padres for two years is enough to make me cringe about what a lousy job the Giants have done in terms of developing their own position players. Here's a guy who's 27, hits 27 HRS, 44 doubles and 97 RBIs in a pitchers park as part of a lineup that's not exactly a juggernaut. Yes, he doesn't get enough walks but that's some serious power from a non-power position. And he plays a decent shortstop. And at 27, it doesn't look like a complete fluke, given his past performance. At $11 million for two years when he's likely to be peaking, it looks like a very good deal for San Diego.

I do love watching Omar Vizquel play but where the hell is the Giants' Khalil? And why hasn't Sabean been fired?
