Blanco, Mijares aslo confirmed avoid arbitration.

I actually think that Pence will have an excellent year in 2013. Glad he's on the team, and I expect that he will be worth the $13.8.

Why dont the giants just sign posey to a long term deal already?

Writers are saying a long-term deal takes a while to hash out so this one-year deal allows them to avoid arbitration and they can work on a long-term deal during the spring.

OK Brian. He may have a good year but he is not worth 13.8 per season.

Lol, my friend we shall see. And I'm not Brian, just a family member.

I really hope you are right DC. With the duo we have in LF we really do need Pence to step it up and hit like he did in 2011.

13.8 is a lot of money, no doubt. But I think if you dig a little deeper (and I know that you do) you will see that Pence was key in our series win last year. His clubhouse presence, veteran leadership, and even his reputation as a hitter in the lineup were huge. And, he played an excellent RF in my opinion, especially when you consider that RF in ATT is one of the more difficult (if not the most) in baseball.

In my mind, he adjusts to the park and has a very good yea in 2013 while bringing everything else that he brought last year. I trust Bochy and Sabean and I'm sure their input had a great deal to do with the money spent.
posey 1 year 8 million

he deserves it

Well DC.. I think if the Giants were really convinced they would have given him a 3 + year deal and bought out a couple of FA years. I think their hands were tied to tell you the truth and they pretty much had to keep Pence for this season. I think there are some doubts in the mind of your relative Brian.

I think that Brian made the right move. He has to decide where to spend a lot of money over the next few years and 13.8 is a relatively cheap one year investment in this day and age if you step back and take a high view of it.
The Giants are one of the teams interested in reliever Brandon Lyon.

lol thats an understatement.

Has there ever been a player with more success to start a career than Posey? You cant do much better than a ROY, 2 WS titles, NL MVP, batting title, silver slugger, and Hank Aaron award over your first 300 career games.
You guys think we should break out the RALLY CAPS this Sunday for the Niners? Powers like that shouldn't be abused, but I think its a good time to bring them back.

Derek Jeter had a nice start to his career too minus the MVP.
