#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 he could have walked more (47 walks in around 600 plate appearances), but there is very little to knock in his 2011 stats.

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...

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...

Nats pursuing DeRosa

The Washington Nationals are reportedly interested in signing free agent Mark DeRosa, according to 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...

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...

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...

Giants extend Sabean, Bochy through 2013 (AP)

General manager Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy have received contract extensions taking them through the 2013 season with club options for 2014, moves that were expected this winter.

Money Talks, and Off-Season Moves May Surprise

Brian Sabean: No 'big splash' additions for Giants

If the Giants are going to make a splash this offseason, it will be to sign Tim Lincecum and/or Matt Cain long term. As general manager Brian Sabean said Tuesday, "Pitching is our gold standard, and we have to make sure...

Outside the Bay Area, the GM merry-go-round spins

While Giants general manager Brian Sabean gained security with Tuesday's extension and Billy Beane remains a fixture with the A's , much of the rest of baseball is experiencing front-office turnover that will alter how...
