What's the deal with the Giants yellow logo hats? Tribute to pollen?
Madison Bumgarner tossed another good game for the Giants tonight. That has mostly led to speculation in our local rags that he will make a good trade candidate. Which really irritates me, obvious though the trading potential may seem at first glance. The assumption, of course, is that the Yankees, or some other team will be desperate for pitching and give the Giants the keys to their super good farm system in exchange for a couple months of rental. But that's not how it works these days, there is too much data to quantify player value and teams are not going to trade away too much of their future.
