Bay Area Buzz 7/21: Sabean’s Best Moves, Sea Gull Issue, Davis the Key?


Brian Sabean’s Best Deadline Deals as GM of the San Francisco Giants

Brian Sabean has never been afraid to make a move. If the San Francisco Giants have a need, Sabean won’t usually shy away from addressing it through trades.
