#34 Gary Brown
San Francisco Giants
Previous Rank: N/R
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.

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...

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...
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...

CEO Larry Baer had been committed during the offseason to keeping both men with the organization after they were instrumental in the team's 2010 World Series championship, the first for the...
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...
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...
