The Giants might be streaking, but their new-found winning ways likely won't stop them from being sellers as the MLB trade deadline approaches (nor should it). 

Now just three games out of the second NL Wild Card, the Giants might have one eye on the playoffs but the other still should be fixed on the future.

As the July 31 trade deadline approaches, the Giants will look to recoup maximum value for ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner and All-Star closer Will Smith.

Bumgarner will be a free agent at the end of the season, so the Giants likely won't be able to get a ton in return for the veteran southpaw.

Unless, perhaps, they package MadBum and Smith together.

That, according to The Athletic's Jim Bowden, would be the Giants' best avenue to maximizing the value of the two lefties.
