Had your fill of Thanksgiving turkey, football and ads for Black Friday?
Me too. So how about we do a little speculating about the 2012 San Francisco Giants?
G.M. Brian Sabean must have some additional tricks up his sleeve. He's made only one substantive roster move, dispatching Jonathan Sanchez to Kansas City for Melky Cabrera. (hey, Sanchy, enjoy those balmy KC winters and mild summers.)
Seems like there's more to do: contract extensions for Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum; a decision at shortstop; and another bat or two.
Discerning Sabean's intentions is pure guess-work. He told the San Jose Mercury-News in late September that holding onto Sanchez was a priority; eight weeks later he was a Royal.
(Moral of the story: if you're joining a poker game and Sabean is at the table, walk the other way.)
Meantime, here are seven things that Sabean and the Giants might be plotting. Or not.
