"TEMPE, Ariz. In what could be a prelude to an extension for GM Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy, the Giants announced promotions for four senior members of their baseball operations staff.
Vice presidents Dick Tidrow and Bobby Evans will add the title of assistant general manager title to their business cards.
Special assistant John Barr, who has been the club's de facto amateur scouting director for the past five seasons, received the official title of Vice President and Assistant GM, Scouting and International Operations.
And Jeremy Shelley, the senior director of baseball operations and pro scouting, was promoted to Vice President, Pro Scouting and Player Evaluation."
Nice to see the guys behind the scenes getting the credit they deserve with promotions. Barr and Tidrow especially. Barr is the guy responsible for drafting Buster Posey.
