Good Post-Election News from San Francisco (but it’s about baseball)

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

“No, Sabean’s not budging. At the GM meetings Wednesday, Sabean delivered his strongest statement to date that the 24-year-old pitcher won’t be traded this offseason for a hitter.

Asked if Cain is untouchable, Sabean said, “Yes. Clubs know that. That hasn’t necessarily discouraged clubs from inquiring or making suggestions of offers. But we don’t see anything out there that gives us a net gain by losing him.”

Sabean is seeking offensive help in other ways, including free agency and trades for pitchers not named Cain, Tim Lincecum or Brian Wilson. His best remaining chips include Jonathan Sanchez and pitching prospects, though it wouldn’t be easy parting with top prospects Madison Bumgarner, 19, or Tim Alderson, who turned 20 this week, both first-round picks from the 2007 draft.”

Obviously, keeping Lincecum last off-season was the right move. So, I think, is keeping Cain.
