07:13 AM ET 07.09 | In a wide-ranging interview, Giants GM Brian Sabean came off as frustrated and trying to figure a way back to contending. [And] he has long since realized that this "haywire" season might be one the Giants just have to accept. ... SABEAN: We've had our place in the sun. If this is the year that's been dealt to us, we have to handle it. We've had a lot of things go right. Apparently this is the year that things go haywire. We have to do what we can without forsaking the future. Q: In your mind, is [Angel Pagan] likely not coming back this year? SABEAN: I don't know that. I think it'll be a stretch to see how much he could play, by the time he would get back. Once somebody has surgery like that, I go beyond conservative. It's possible but I don't know how probable it is.

Pagan is not going to make you or break you Mr. GM. You are in the division race now, so pick up a bat at the trading deadline, keep pitching and playing defense, and see what happens the rest of the year.

No he's not. And he's a player that needs to able to run so the hammy needs to be 100% before he comes back. Call it a season for Pagan.

Giants need to make a move or two...they are still very much in the race.

The giants are one of the few teams with more hopes towards the playoffs spot though, :-) :-) :-)
