i hope its just cain, bummy, and gaud. I guess they can bring in whatever pitchers they want to fill out the rotation.
I personally wouldn't mind if the G's rebuild like they did 2005-2008. It may be that time....
Maybe "save" some money they would spend on FA and use that money to pay off the ball park. Then in 2017, if sabes and co. rebuild correctly, we would have a nice minor league system AND a killer pay roll. But I think they should trade everyone not named posey and bumgarner. Crick, Blackburn, Escobar, and the other young pitchers would be ready and Cain and Bummy would still be under contract. Also, the team would shed every "negative contract."
I guess the team can try to stay competitive but I think their time may be up as I predicted last year.
