Giants Rumors: Durham, Aurilia, Vizquel

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News talked to Giants GM Brian Sabean about his deadline plans.  By the way, you can download Sabean’s trade history here.

  • Sabean may make an acquisition to aid the ’08 club, which is only five games out.  However, he won’t acquire players who will become free agents after the season.  He compared his situation to ’05, when the Giants added Randy Winn for Jesse Foppert and Yorvit Torrealba.
  • Unlike that deal, the Giants are not going to move any of their young pitchers.
  • Ray Durham, Rich Aurilia, and Omar Vizquel are prime candidates to be traded.  Durham told Baggarly he wouldn’t use his 10-and-5 rights to block a deal.  The second baseman was recently linked to the Brewers by Ken Rosenthal.
  • Henry Schulman noted a few days ago that Sabean is "not thinking of trading Randy Winn or Bengie Molina."
