Richie, Ray and Randy -- Trade bait?
"If the Giants bench all the older guys, they will have a lot of payroll riding the pine. At the same time, that would not help the team's bid to trade some of them for prospects at the July deadline. A merchant needs to stick his wares in the window, and they must be shiny. " That's part of Henry Schulman's explanation in today's SF Chronicle for why the three vets are getting so much playing time right now, especially with Nate Schierholtz tearing up PCL pitching. I hope he's right -- but I have little faith in Sabean's ability to get decent prospects in return.
