Winter Meetings: "Whew!!"
Starting pitcher: M.C. O'Connor
Yeah, that's my reaction. "Whew" we did not trade Matt Cain or Tim Lincecum. At this point, we have so many holes, that trading one of the two best young pitchers in the game just doesn't make sense. Matt has already established himself as a 'top-tenner,' and Tim is flashing signs of brilliance every time he gets on the mound. Sure, either one of them could flame out. But other than a sure-fire young super-stud (like Prince Fielder, the NL MVP in my book), there is NO ONE worth giving up on these guys for. So, "whew," we dodged a Winter Meetings bullet. Sabean didn't do anything, so he didn't do anything dumb.
