I hate to admit it, but they're going to be a power house for the foreseeable future. I just hope the G's can step up their game and their payroll (slightly) and rival the dodger's future success-ala yanks/redsox with the Giants playing the roll of the red sox. (the under dog)
Ownership has to open up their wallets if they want to compete with the dodgers, the dodgers have shown money isn't an option and will do anything to bring top tier talent. Either start scouting better or open up the damn check book, I can't stand hearing and seeing every winter some big name going to LA
I was very critical about the Giants being a cheap team, but the team has opened their wallets over the years. The team was a top 5 team in payroll at the beginning of the year. IIRC DET, PHI, LAD, NYY, BOS had higher payrolls.
Maybe they could trim their payroll by 5-10 million and allocate the money to scouting and drafting? We cannot compete with their wallets but maybe we can do a better job in scouting and drafting.
