Deal or No Deal

Giants GM Brian Sabean spent big money on the free-agent market. What do you think of his wheeling and dealing?

A) I think it looks like a 75-87 record and a third-place finish in the division.

B) Here's the thing: It takes old players to play "new baseball."

C) Well, to be fair, the Giants have pretty much given up on the whole "defense wins championships" thing. And the "win championships" thing, for that matter.

7) Which of Sabean's recent acquisitions gives you the most hope for the Giants' future?

A) Sweeney. He's an excellent teammate.

B) Randy Winn. I know we're paying him $23 million and he only hit .262 with 11 home runs last year, but they don't call him "Winn" for nothing.

C) All these new deck chairs! It's gonna be the All-Star Break until we're finished rearranging them ...

How to score:

Score zero points for every "A" answer, one point for every "B," and two points for every "C."

0-6 points: Alas, it's the 49ers who are moving to the suburbs.

7-10 points: Not sure where the Giants stand? Probably behind the Dodgers and Padres. And Rockies.

11-14 points: Congratulations! You're a true apologist for Brian Sabean. It must be the sagacious salt-and-pepper beard.
