Being a General Manager can be a difficult thing at certain times, but few times are as pressure filled as the mid-season Trading Deadline. The organization is looking at you for the perfect idea to push the team over the hump. The players are anxiously awaiting their fate, either if they'll be playing somewhere else, or replaced by a newcomer. And the fans are clamoring often for anything…and occasionally everything. So what's a savvy GM like Brian Sabean to do?

After facing their division rivals in Los Angeles, the Giants travel back home (but not really) to face their Bay Area rivals in Oakland.The Giants salvage their lead in the NL West with a win in LA as they go against another streaking team, the Oakland A's, who have won six in a row coming into this weekend's series. Both teams are coming into this game confident and as competitive as ever, both wanting to be the winning headline in the Bay Area newspapers the next morning.
