    Hope they don't have to rely on Santiago Blosavilla much longer.

    Giants need at least one more reliever down the stretch. May need another OF/bat if Pence's injury lingers. Going to have to rework the bullpen and OF after the season any way, but tough call on draining the farm system to fill in the gaps now or tweak the roster after the season.

    Actually I NEVER want to talk baseball. I'm sure most giants fans feel the same way after a miserable showing in San Diego.

    We should talk CAL here and other stuff on other internet sites

    Yankees will be sellers; wouldn't be surprised to see Miller or Chapman dealt though Chapman is a rental.

    You don't want to talk about baseball, so you started a troll thread about baseball.

    Makes sense.

    Giants have a farm system???

    Sacramento is terrible ever since they hooked up with the giants.

    Injuries to the big club guys?? They have to call up retreads like Ramiro Pena and Grant Green ...

    Currently, their top two farm clubs are dead last in the standings by a wide margin .... What farm system???

    San Diego is nice this time of year, so they decided to take the weekend off.

    And the Giants' farm system has been pathetic for the last several seasons.

    One tradeoff of chasing titles is cannibalizing your future. Giants traded future All-Star Adam Duvall for Mike Leake in 2014.

    Posey, Bum, Crawford, Belt, Panik, Cain, and Lincecum were all home grown all-stars.

    Christian Arroyo, Phil Bickford, and Tyler Beede are major prospects. They'd have to give one of them up for Miller. Arroyo's blocked by Crawford. Need to replace Peavy, Cain, and Cueto over the next two seasons, so don't want to deal Bickford or Beede now.

    Yeah, this idea of the Giants' farm system being terrible is a little silly, given how many of their starters and/or contributors are homegrown. It has done exactly what a farm system should do: stock the big-league club.

    Posey. Belt. Crawford. Panik. Duffy. That's pathetic? Show me a farm system that has produced an infield that good.

    The problem is that I don't see any pitchers there. Or a freaking CLOSER!
