    Time to rebuild the Giants?

    Will San Francisco start selling off expensive pieces and start a rebuild? With a $180m payroll for 2017 they have a lot of expensive players and currently stand 24 1/2 games out of 1st place and in the Western division cellar.

    I think they'll deal Cueto. I think he has an opt out clause as well, and they'll move him at the deadline.

    I'd guess they'd be open to dealing Shark as well.

    They need Cain to retire.
