Baseball America's Giants 2012 Top 10 Prospects

The Baseball America digital edition landed in my inbox this afternoon and I was quite happy that this issue was the NL West Prospect preview. The Giants top 10 list is a bit different than the one that I was putting together but the Baseball America scouts did have some nice things to say about the Giants prospects. Here is the top 10 list and a bit of the future blurb for...

Hot stove update: Operation Panda 3.0, Buster plays golf, no free agent “big splashes” this winter, and more…

Key members of the Giants’ front office held a press conference with reporters today to announce the contract extensions of manager Bruce Bochy and GM Brian Sabean, and to talk about the team’s goings-on since the season ended last month.

Giants extend contracts of Bochy, GM Sabean

The San Francisco Giants extended the contracts of Bruce Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean through the 2013 season. The team holds a club option for both men for the 2014 season. Bochy directed the Giants to a World Series championship in 2010, but the team finished eight games behind Arizona in the National League West last season. In five seasons with the Giants, Bochy...

On this date in Giants history — Nov. 30

(All entries courtesy nationalpastime.com) 2010: The Dodgers sign free agent Juan Uribe to a three-year, $21 million deal to play second base for the team. The enthusiastic and versatile 31-year-old Dominican infielder, who was part of the Giants’ 2010 World Series championship run, also gives new manager Don Mattingly more options at shortstop and third base. Uribe would wind...

Nats pursuing DeRosa

The Washington Nationals are reportedly interested in signing free agent Mark DeRosa, according to MLB.com writer Bill Ladson. DeRosa, 36, was a bust in his two years with the Giants. After being signed to a two-year, $12 million contract in 2010, the oft-injured utility man played in just 73 games, due to a series of problems with his wrist. DeRosa batted .194/.279/.258 with 1...

Sabean: No 'Big Splash' Additions

Appearing at a news conference Tuesday to answer questions about his new extension, Brian Sabean also discussed the ongoing free agency period and the Giants plans for adding players in order to compete for another World Series title. And his answers should make Giants fans just about as happy as hearing that the Giants are trying to trade someone who's $5 million option they...

Top 50 Prospects: #34 – Gary Brown

#34 Gary Brown San Francisco Giants DOB: 9/28/1988 Previous Rank: N/R ETA: 2013   After a brilliant career at Fullerton, the Giants wisely selected Brown with the 24th overall pick in 2010.  In his first full season of professional baseball, Brown slashed an absurd .336/.407/.519 with over 60 hits for extra bases and 53 stolen bases for San Jose.  I guess you could say that...

On the Sabean Extension

It’s relatively easy to objectively evaluate players. That’s not the case with managers or GMs, however — though I gave my best shot at it earlier with respect to the Bochy extension. Now, I’ll tackle the Sabean extension. The fact of the matter is, the process of an organization’s decision-making extends beyond the GM. Always. He often gets all the credit or blame for...

Pablo Sandoval: Jack-Be-Nimble, Jack-Be-Quick

He didn’t win a Gold Glove. He didn’t win a Fielding Bible Award. But Pablo Sandoval may be the best defensive third baseman in the National League, if not the majors. Yes, I’m a San Francisco Giants fan. A season-ticket holder, in fact. So I do see a lot of Sandoval at the hot corner over the course of the season. But neither my fandom nor my eyes have blinded me. Sandoval...
