I'm willing to admit I may be wrong about Sabes. Maybe he has a plan, and maybe he can build a good team without Barry Bonds being the Greatest Player of All Time. I'd love to be wrong, actually. A winning SFG team is more important than my "record" of being consistent, intelligent, articulate or accurate. But Sabes strikes me as a Rowand kind of guy: solid MLB pro but nothing fancy. My problem is: I want fancy. It think Sabes should hire some "assistant" GMs to do the real work of player evaluation and talent scouting. He can drift into the background and "oversee" the smart, young bucks. How about that Kim Ng from LA?
