The San Francisco Giants sit in second place in the National League West, and atop the NL Wild Card race as well.
Yet there are still many fans out there making noise, wanting the Black and Orange to pull off one more move to make that final playoff push.
But it seems that, whenever the Giants are linked to a player, something goes wrong that takes them out of reach.
And for those (like me) who think the current roster has what it takes to make it to October, that could or could not be a good thing. As the prices for the remaining (AKA healthy) free agents goes up, the Giants become less and less likely to pull the trigger.
This sets GM Brian Sabean up to make maybe a small move or two to simply bolster the roster without shaking up too much.
With every injury, a door closes. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
