Official 2017 San Francisco Giants Season Thread (20-30) vs. Atlanta Braves (05.26 - 05.28) - Page 8

post #211 of 9789
It honestly disgusts me that our management claims we are "tapped out" of funds. Seriously?!? Its like we have had a printing press at AT&T Park over the past 3 years and could have printed any money we wanted. Look, I am thrilled with the success of the team over the past 3 years. Cant complain at all.

But moving forward, if we want to sustain the success, we need to keep improving. This offseason, we did NOT improve. But if you look at all the other NL competitors, they ALL got better. Nationals got better. Reds got better. Dodgers (although cant declare them competitors yet) got better. Phillies got better. But we did not.

I am not saying that we need to compete with the Dodgers and sign everyone we could. But Nick Swisher as our everyday left fielder would cost, what Torres' salary +6 Million? I am sorry but the way that we have been generating revenue the last 3 years, combined with some massive contracts expiring this offseason, there is no reason why we couldnt cant add a Nick Swisher type player.

We need some damn pop!

They didn't improve the club in 2011 and we know what happened.

Tim Lincecum returning back to form would be a huge improvement for the team.

I really hope Brandon Belt has a break out year and Crawford bats over .250.

See, I dont understand this in the slightest bit. So we are apparently "tapped out" as far as money for Free Agents. Then we give Andres Torres, a replacement level player, $2M. Then we offer Ichiro $7.5M. So why is it we havent offered Swisher a contract again? Surely he wont be getting much more than $9.5M a year right? He said he wants to play here. Sign him up!!!

I agree. Dodgers are making it Rain and we are not even upgrading LF

Swisher, 32, batted .272/.364/.473 with 24 home runs, 93 RBI and an .837 OPS this past season. He turned down a one-year, $13.3 million qualifying offer from the Yankees to test free agency, so whoever signs him will have to surrender a draft pick.

I'd say he wants between 12-15. 3-4 years.

He wants to come here, so let the man come here.

Can't believe I'm hearing this news regarding Swisher. We need to sign him and stop with this idea of platooning outfielders depending on a righty or lefty pitching for the opponent. He'll add much needed power from the bottom of the lineup.

Pagan, Scutaro, Sandoval, Posey, Pence, Swisher, Belt, and Crawford sounds like wonders but our front office is too damn cheap.

We're not signing Swisher, I'd bet on it.

Torres concludes the OF through FA. I saw it coming too...

That's also the first time I've seen anything about Ichiro...Who sourced it?

With our luck it'd be like having Shinjo back.

Source says Yankees and Ichiro close to finalizing two-year contract worth $12-13 million. Two sides putting finishing touches on deal.

Having the old Lincecum and Pence actually hitting like a major leaguer = our FA additions.  

 

I've come to terms with it.

 

Where do you guys think Wilson ends up?  

 

If Lincecum has another subpar season, do ya'll think the Giants let him explore the FA market?  Or will he be traded?

post #225 of 9789
I meant who tied Ichiro to the Giants?

What Up brings up an interesting point - while we're printing money we still need money for Posey and perhaps Timmy depending on how he does...then Pence as well if he does well...

Timmy is a hard one cuz I couldn't ever picture him in any other uniform...I can't see the team not wanting to get something for him if they don't want to bring him back versus letting him walk.

“@CSNBaggs: Giants signed Santiago Casilla to a three-year deal.”

“@CSNBaggs: Correction: Giants buying out TWO free-agent years for Casilla, plus have club control over a third with the option.”

I could see Wilson going to the Tigers, Mets, Braves or Blue Jays.

I'd think a trade. Probably hoping an AL team may show interest.

How much did we overpay Casilla?

Gave Casilla 3/$15M

I think this officially marks the end of Brian Wilson's career in SF. And LB, you cant trade free agents.

I'm saying a mid season deal at the deadline. I feel even if he has a decent year the figure will still be too high. He's going to be kicking himself for not expecting the deal offered at the beginning of last season. Not to mention Posey need to be locked up, they have already said they are interested in signing Pence and guys like Crawford, Belt and Blanco will be due for raises.

Agreed. It look better if they did color or logo schemes with the teams we beat instead of just that boring white font.

Sergio Romo arrested in Las Vegas

Giants closer Sergio Romo was arrested on New Year's day at the Las Vegas airport, according to a report which the Giants have confirmed to CSNBayArea.com.

TMZ first reported the story Thursday.

Law enforcement told TMZ Romo became 'angry and aggressive' after he wasn't able to provide officials proper identification to get through security.

Officials also told TMZ Romo was taken to the police station at the Las Vegas airport, where he was cited for violating airport rules. He was then escorted off the airport grounds. TMZ also reported officials said Romo appeared to be under the influence.

Oh Las Vegas.

TSA is supposed to protect us from terrorists, right? So how come these idiots waste time by screening celebrities, pro athletes, and grade school kids?
