2013 San Francisco Giants Thread

Conflicted. Happy we resigned him, but I thought 75 mil was the price. He is still young so the five years doesn't bother me. So going forward, we are set in CF with Pagan, and RF with Pence. If he finds a way to get a decent LF I'll be happy. If they fail to address LF because of the money I will be disappointed.

Trade Posey for Cespedes and John Jaso

Choo would cost the same but Id rather have Pence than Choo.

I'd like to see the Giants maybe swing a deal for a guy like Josh Willingham / Pat Burrell type.

Definitely rather have Choo than Pence. 100 times out of 100

Choo is so underrated because he doesnt put up big numbers. I'd easily take him over Pence too
john's going to be pissed about this contract.


I think i hit the nail on the head with the numbers. I don't think he could've gotten more on the open market.....
#17 Shin-Soo Choo
Cincinnati Reds2013 Record: 90-70
BA HR RBI
.287 21 54


#8 Hunter Pence
San Francisco Giants2013 Record: 75-85
BA HR RBI
.282 26 94

Neither deserve over 12 mil a year

I agree they both don't deserve 18 mil, but stats aren't the reason. The giants haven't quite put guys on base and in scoring position for Pence. All of our hitters pretty much created their own stuff. Pence can steal bases as well, which isn't reflected in your post. Also he plays everyday. Good defender.
Congrats in locking up Pence. He wanted to stay there so he got what he requested.

X 5 years = $30 million overpaid.

Basically takes the spot of Zito's contract after this year.

Won't have money to sign Panda long-term now regardless of whether they want to or not.

Will sign Timmy for a ridiculous amount, get a s**tty back-end starter and fail to get any impact international players and hope for the best again next year.

Hoping for the best worked out pretty well in '10 and '12.

That is exactly what I'm worried about, and I can see that happening now too. This offseason had so much potential, but we shot ourselves in the foot overpaying for Pence. There's not enough money to go around to find two more SP, a LF and a late-inning reliever. We're screwed if we don't budge on the $130 million payroll.
60 mil wasnt gonna get it done dudes, quit overreacting. Most thought 75 mil would.

Yeah, totally. We didn't add Hunter Pence or Marco Scutaro or anything for our run in 2012 because we had such great hitters.

Many people, myself included said Sabean blew last year's off season by trying to keep the same team and he's doing the same thing again minus Zito when it CLEARLY didn't work this year.
