08:17 AM ET 08.17 | Plan B for San Francisco may not be pretty. Alfonso Soriano indicated to Chicago Cubs beat writers on Wednesday that he would not waive his no-trade rights for the [Giants]. Other external options will be available to the Giants if they seek to replace left fielder Melky Cabrera. ... But the supply figures to be limited. Consider the New York Mets' Scott Hairston and Philadelphia Phillies' Juan Pierre, outfielders whose names surfaced in trade discussions before the July 31 non-waiver deadline. Both Hairston and Pierre have yet to be placed on waivers, according to major-league sources. But a team that trails the Giants in the overall NL standings -- a team such as the Arizona Diamondbacks -- likely would block both players.

That would make it unanimous then. 30 teams that do not want him at that price.

Their are a lot of Juiced Players to choose from!!!

Since the Giants are in the race the article is right no team below them is going to let them bolster their team with a trade. Probably the only opinion the Giants are going to have is to bring up someone from Fresno. Maybe Xavier Nady

No one is going to trade for that contract unless Boston eats some of it.

Too bad this didn't happen before the trade deadline. They could have gotten Victorino too, instead of LA.

See? That wasn't so difficult, now was it.

Crawford looks like he needs surgery, can't throw or hit for much power. The contract is bad, but the damaged arm is worse. I'm not sure why he is still playing; maybe Boston thinks it would look like surrendering if they let him get surgery now? Or maybe they think no one else has noticed his arm issues?

The team isn't convinced that he needs to have surgery.

It doesn't seem to be healing on it's own, but maybe I'm just being impatient.
