Why Zaidi says red-hot Giants won’t abandon trade deadline plans

Farhan Zaidi may not agree with its premise, but he seemingly agrees with an ESPN report Wednesday that the Giants’ recent winning ways won’t much alter his trade deadline plans. Before his team won 12 of its last 14 games, conventional thinking had the Giants president of baseball operations looking to restock the team’s farm system by offloading assets, namely pitchers Madison Bumgarner and Will Smith. But to Zaidi, it’s never really been a question of choosing to buy or sell before the July 31 deadline. “This entire season for us has never been a throwaway season or rebuilding season,” Zaidi said on KNBR-680’s “Murph and Mac Show” Wednesday. “Not every trade that’s made leading up to the trade deadline is a pure buy-or-sell deal. Sometimes it’s a need-for-need deal. That might be the direction that we go.” After talking with other baseball executives, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that, wins be damned, the 47-49 Giants aren’t straying from a plan to try to deal Bumgarner and relievers such as Will Smith, Tony Watson and Sam Dyson. “They are selling.

100 years ago: Ebenhack home on fire, nearly

When is a fire not a fire? Ask Mrs. Harry Ebenhack. Promptly at 1 o’clock this afternoon a fire alarm was turned in from the Ebenhack home on north Lincoln street. Oliver Baciarini was in the barber chair enjoying the luxury of a shave, and forgetting all made a mad dash for the door reaching it in double time just as the engine went clanging past, thus our amiable foreman of the fire department was on the job, even though one side of his face was covered with lather and whiskers, arrived at the scene of the fire he made enquiries and found the would-be fire was in the attic. The boys tore off the greater part of the roof before they found the fire was nil. Mrs. Ebenhack had been burning trash in the yard and after going inside she found the house full of smoke and turned in the alarm. — July 18, 1919

Since first writing about it, many of you have shared creative, innovative and clever strategies you are using to enjoy this service and cut your overall food costs. Enjoy these great reader ideas. SINGLE PROFESSIONAL Dear Mary: Cooking for one is not an easy task. I’m not an experienced cook, which makes it even more challenging. I end up going to the grocery and leaving with half a dinner and $50 in snacks. Or if I do plan ahead and try to buy ingredients for a specific recipe, I end up with extra ingredients that expire before I use them. Eating in restaurants gets tiresome and very expensive. With Home Chef, I choose three two-serving meals per week ($60 with free shipping). I’m single, but still, when I prepare one meal, I cook both servings at the same time for convenience. Then I reheat the second serving the following night. HC meals are so good it doesn’t even seem like leftovers. I…
