The Crazy Crabbers:
Over at Fangraphs they have been working on a crowd sourcing project for each free agent. Today the results were announced so I thought it would be fun to take a look at what the results were for each of the Giants free agents.
Angel Pagan: 3 years, $10 million AAV (Average Annual Value)
Looking at this it makes the decision to not make a qualifying offer all the more puzzling. Pagan is one of the better free agent outfielder available and it seems like a good bet that he gets at least this deal from some team and possibly more from a desperate team.
I think if this is the best offer he gets the Giants can sign him, if it goes much higher than this he might be gone.
Marco Scutaro: 2 years, $8 million AAV
This is a little higher than I expected due to his age but I wouldn't say that this is an overpay. Going back to 2008, he hasn't produced a season where he was worth less than $9.5 million. That's a solid track record.
I would love if the Giants were ...
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s the move that everyone knew was coming… The San Francisco Giants have declined Aubrey Huff‘s $10 million option. Huff will not leave empty handed as the team must pay him a $2 million buyout. Oh, and 2 World Series rings!
Huff has had a drastic decline since the magical 2010 season. Majority of the fans are on board with this move and are thankful to Huff for the memories...
Yesterday’s parade was a success. All the players had a great time, and the fans got to celebrate winning the 2012 World Series with their San Francisco Giants. The only downfall to me was the parade was on Halloween, so I couldn’t attend. I went to my kids Halloween parade at school. However, I did get a chance to watch the Giants parade on TV.
Now that the season and parade...
Sergio Romo decided to use the San Francisco Giants World Series championship parade on Wednesday as an opportunity to make a political statement. As you can see from the photo above that Big League Stew shared with us, the Giants reliever proudly rocked a t-shirt that read “I just look illegal” across the front.
Romo’s parents were originally from Mexico, but he was born and...
San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom's 3-year-old daughter Montana has accompanied her dad to Giants games, and although she's probably too young to really understand the game or have a favorite player, there's one she definitely doesn't care for...Tim Lincecum.
Mayor Newsom (@GavinNewsom) tweeted out a picture of the the trio recently and young Montana looks absolutely...
First baseman Aubrey Huff has received a $2 million buyout from the San Francisco Giants after the club declined the team option on his $10 million contract for 2013. Huff, 35, was limited by injuries this season and hit .192 with one home run and seven RBI in 52 games. He went 1 for 9 in the Giants' postseason run to the World Series championship. Huff had signed a two-year...
The Giants trudged along this year in the NL West, getting continually overshadowed by the Dodgers trading for every name player with a pulse and spending money by the truckload. But when the dust settled, the Giants were the division champions, and after a tough month of October, the World Champions. But San Francisco has some key members of the 2012 championship team ready to hit...
Everything was going as planned for Bruce Bochy during the Giants’ World Series parade. He was seated comfortably in his Rolls Royce, triumphantly showing off the Giant’s World Series trophy to fans when suddenly the Rolls runs out of gas.
The post Bruce Bochy’s Rolls Royce ran out of gas during Giants World Series parade first appeared on No Guts, No Glory.
I’m not going to recap the four games of the World Series. If you didn’t watch, it’s mainly because you’re a dolt and do not possess the brain pan to enjoy one of the three best sports in the world today. That’s not my fault. The Giants handled the Tigers in four games after being pushed to the brink of elimination in the NLDS by the Reds and again in the NLCS by the Cardinals...
Does Tim Lincecum freak you out? Cosby Sweaters grabbed the above of the freak scaring a little boy.

A few days ago, the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers out of the World Series. It was the 21st World Series sweep in history, out of the 108 played since 1903. (The was no World Series in 1904 or 1994.) When the Tigers swept the Yankees, it was the 19th total LCS sweep, out of 86 total since 1969. Obviously, not all playoff series are created equal. Some are best-of-three...
In my last piece, I analyzed three main outfield targets for the Detroit Tigers this offseason. Now that Angel Pagan and Torii Hunter are officially free agents, the games will begin. Click here for more on that story.
Another point of interest this offseason is what the Tigers will do with their bullpen. Jose Valverde is out. And with that, Tigers fans can finally breathe. But they...
