Say what???????????????????

sorry, i meant to say that he should't cost MUCH more than 13.8 million. Maybe the 15-16 range.

I think 15 should be the number. 4/15 for 60 is the # I would like to see.

Fitz on knbr was ready to blow a blood vessel if they pay him $20 mil/yr.

15-16?

ok

I think everyone would or should blow a blood vessel if Pence gets 20M per year. He isnt worth that. Yes, he has been unbelievable the last couple of weeks and has had a nice year. But, he wasnt good at all last year and was downright awful in the playoffs. I seriously doubt he would have gotten 15 per year without this latest surge but it would be foolish to go overboard on him.

I'm in full agreement.

It was discussed that the m.o. for this gm/management is that for example they pay Pence 20 mil they'll skimp on a LF. Even though they have money coming out of their ears.

Not saying spend north of 200 mil, but they are going to have to adjust their mindset if they want to stay competitive with LA.

It's just the way it is. The Giants have very little in their farm system. Tack on another quarter for garlic fries or whatever.

But do it. Do it now.

The thing that worries me is Sabean's FA track record. Not so great.

Also, remember that Sabean has confirmed he'll extend a qualifying offer to Pence. Any team willing to pay Pence 20M annually must also give up a pick (assuming it's not protected). I'd honestly perfer the Giants let Pence walk, collect the sandwich pick and sign Choo to a long term deal or Cruz / Granderson / Hart / Morse to a proven it one year deal.

I just wish I was Pence's agent and sitting across from Sabean. You just know Sabean will screw this up, panic, and overpay. He did it with Pagan, Huff, Scutaro, and Affeldt and tried to do it with Uribe and Timmy. His track record with other teams FA's is, as you say, not so great. That is being kind.

The Giants have some money to spend but not that much unless they dramatically increase the budget. Which I doubt happens. If they overpay Hunter they will not be players for Tanaka, Abreu, or anyone else of note.
70 wins!

Yep. Looks unlikely now. Giants cant even tank right. To me, this makes it even more likely that they will make a move on Abreu and not go after a player that they will have to give up their #1 pick as it wont be top 10 protected.

Once Pagan came back, we were destined to play better and f**k up the tank. I think people see how valuable he is now to our lineup. Dude is explosive. Doesnt have the best OPS, but he is explosive. Also a lot better CF than adverstised while in NY.
