This is why the Giants are a better franchise than the A's. This is why they dominate bay area baseball popularity.

They have always prioritized keeping their stars/fan favorites. I bought a Posey authentic in the summer of 2010, and then a home authentic last year because I knew hed get locked up longterm. The core of Posey/Cain/Bumgarner is going to be around for a LONG time.

So do you think Posey will eventually move to 1B permanently later in his career? Most of media baseball analysts seem to think so, even if that means that will create a conflict if Brandon Belt finally wakes up.

My two cents is eventually he'll be at third base. You can feel Sabean/Bochy are getting tired of dealing with Pablo about his weight.
Is it me or did the Giants pull off a huge bargain with the Posey extension. Compared at least to what these other jackoffs are getting......

Ya me too. I'm sure by 2020 premier players will be getting somewhere around 35-40 a year.

Must be nice to be able to monopolize 7 out of 9 Bay Area counties and obstruct a regional rival from moving to a county 45 miles away from you, and which that team graciously allowed you to have 20 years ago so didn't have to move to Florida...

It could go up as high as $189m if the Giants utilize the $22m option. Either way he has deserved it.

Got a fantasy question for you Giants fans. What's Scutaro's role this year? I drafted him for a utility player to plug in on off days. Is he gonna play everyday or 1st guy off the bench?

Or because Lew Wolf is a piece of s**t scrooge mcduck owner that doesn't care about winning at all.

Pretty sure if Billy Beane was given the money that nearly every other GM is given by their owner to keep his stars the A's would be a contender year in and year out. I feel bad for the guy and love him for not leaving us for any other franchise, because we all know he easily could if he wanted to.
