Giants GM says deadline trades unlikely
SAN FRANCISCO -- A team hoping to fortify itself must complete trades by Wednesday for the acquired players to be eligible to perform in the postseason. But don't anticipate the struggling Giants to make any last-minute additions.

"Nobody's going to save the day," general manager Brian Sabean said Tuesday. "I don't expect us to do anything."

During last August, the Giants obtained infielder Mike Fontenot and outfielder Cody Ross to accelerate their march toward the World Series. This time, San Francisco will supplement its roster with Minor Leaguers promoted after roster limits expand to 40 on Thursday.

Given the Giants' collective offensive funk, much curiosity has surrounded 26-year-old first baseman Brett Pill, who entered Tuesday batting .310 with 24 home runs and 104 RBIs for Triple-A Fresno. Sabean was noncommittal when asked about the Giants' interest in promoting Pill.

"It has been discussed," Sabean said. "We have a couple of days to figure it out. He's had a nice year statistically."

Somewhat ominously, Sabean added, "If we were sold with any of those guys, they already would have been up here trying to help us."
