The Giants supposedly have an "interest" in KC's David DeJesus, according to D.J. Short of Hardball Talk.
Giant-beater Edwin Encarnacion has been cut loose by the Jays (h/t Baseball Musings).
I think the Giants have to be buyers at this point. Not necessarily either of these guys, but opportunities like this are going to arise as the season continues. The team is in contention and the race will only get tougher. There's only a brief window to win in the cruel, hard world of MLB. Considering that the San Francisco club has never won the Big Prize, I should think the team ought to go all out for this season and next. Spend, trade, deal, claim, whatever. Get it done. Get the bats we need to win big. No more dinking around for 4-3 scratch-and-claw wins. Score 6 runs a fucking game with our staff and we'll and run the table with ease.
