I was just thinking about if this was the best Giants season ever the other day. I think 2010 was probably more significant, because it ended the drought, but I think 2012 is my favorite of all time. It was awesome from start to finish. A perfect game, which we might not ever see again, the Giants being in the spotlight during the AS game, cruising to a division title after LA bulked up, especially that 3 game shutout sweep. The whole playoff/WS run coming back from near elimination several times. Beating the heavily favored Tigers in a 4 game sweep, Posey winning most every award he qualified for, etc.

Not to mention that overall, with the exception of the poor performances of the staff on occasion... I think this team in 2012 is better than in 2010. I agree with pretty much everything you said.

I dont know. The 2010 team had more power and better starting pitching with Timmy at the top of his game. I also think the best team that either team played was the Phillies in 2010 and the Giants took them out in 6. The 2012 team had to overcome so much but I would not say it was better overall. Arguments can be made both ways though.

Also, the Jays look really good right now:

SS Reyes
LF Melky (assuming he's actually still a decent baseball player)
RF Bautista
DH Encarnacion
3B Lawrie
1B Lind
C Arencibia
CF Rasmus
2B Bonifacio

That's an insane lineup.

Unlike the NYY or LAD who try to buy a WS title, I have no hatred towards Toronto, so I'm meh about their team. But enjoying the negative rep Miami is getting though.

EDIT: But I agree with others, waaay overpaid for Melky...taught cheating players that all is forgiven so easily.

So is Gregor the permanent replacement for the Melk or what

not full time. They will add an outfielder I'm assuming to platoon with him.

With Melky getting 16 Million for 2 years I can only imagine now what guys like BJ Upton will get. I though Pagan's ceiling was 4/40 but I might be wrong now given this crazy deal for Melky. This is why its so important to draft well. Free Agency is nuts.

The Giants should draft pitching and outfielders only in the first 15 rounds.

you are gonna overpay in Free Agency no matter who you sign. I get what you are saying though. FA should be used to plug holes and not a way to build a team your core of your team should be home grown players

I agree if the Giants can lock up their core players, then the draft as you mentioned should be exclusively on pitching and Corner Outfielders. Panik probably could be a decent 2nd baseman two seasons from now and eventually Gary Brown will take over Center Field.

Yes primarily because you control them for so long until they hit free agency.
