I think there's nobody worth calling up is there?
 
They can trade a big name like Cueto to a team contending for division
or WC to shore up their roster but the Giants need to fleece them of
some top prospects, which the Giants don't have.
 
I wonder if the high payrolls they've taken on in the past few years
lead them to cut back on the farm system and we're dealing with the
fallout from those choices now.
 
Sure you have to draft well but I don't know if there are any Giants
prospects in the top 50 or even top 100 lists any more.
 
Unfortunately fixing the farm system is not a quick fix.
 
So as attendance inevitably declines and merchandise sales fall, does
management try to make some big free agent signings again in the offseason?
 
Or maybe overspend in the international market to make up for the
decrepit farm system?

Crawford has been hitting very intermittently and Belt is a strike out
artist who occassionally hits a home run. Taken together, most of the
infield is having a lousy year. You've got outfielders that can't stay
healthy, one who is a guarantee to not throw a runner out because he's
got a noodle arm. It's a bad combination.
 
If the writers and fans think Bumgarner is going to turn it around
when he returns to the rotation, I'd say wait. He wasn't doing
particularly well before he was injured and he looks nothing like
himself in rehab.

Sabean or whoever is running the farm system has run it down to the ground.
