Mark Bowman of MLB.com says the Braves are looking for a left-handed reliever. I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m talking about the Braves wish list? If the San Francisco Giants are sellers at the trade deadline then this means they could be shopping around Javier Lopez or possibly Jeremy Affeldt. Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports (via Sulia) that he talked with a rival front office guy who confirmed that if the Giants are buying at the deadline, their best trade bait is the pitching in the low minors, but he also said that with catching at such a premium, some teams will ask for Double-A catcher Andrew Susac in return for big-league-talent. Chris Haft of MLB.com lists the Giants’ all-time top 5 in-season trades. I will list them below, but please check out the article to read more details about each trade.
