SF Giants Rumors: Sanchez On The Way Out, Crisp... →
Chris Haft of MLB.com says Jonathan Sanchez could be packaged in a deal to try to land the Giants a bat. “Every year I’m [rumored] for a trade. … I’ll probably stay here my whole career, you know?,” said Sanchez. Sanchez is arbitration eligible and the Giants may tender him a contract to trade him, or non-tender him and let him walk as a free agent. Sanchez made $4.8 million in 2011, and...

Carlos Beltran already escaped one ownership mess with the New York Mets. Now the Giants, his current club, are in the midst of their second palace revolt in three seasons. Beltran insisted the stunning ouster of managing partner Bill Neukom would have no bearing on whether he re-signs with the Giants as a free agent after the season. But in a revealing interview with this newspaper, the...

Previewing the 2012 Free Agent Oufield Market →
Aaron Rowand‘s gone for good, and the Giants will lose several outfielders — Carlos Beltran, Cody Ross, Pat Burrell — to free agency. Nate Schierholtz will be back, in with a breakout season, could potentially see regular playing time in the outfield. In addition, the Giants will presumably tender Andres Torres a contract, though it remains to be seen what role he’ll play next season. Anyway,...
Neukom out, Baer in as Giants shake things up in... →
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Giants managing general partner Bill Neukom — he of the flashy bow tie collection — is leaving his current role and Larry Baer, the team’s President and CEO, is taking over. The Chronicle says a “communication problem” is at issue. Evidently, Neukom wasn’t telling the team’s 30-person ownership group what they wanted to hear. Neukom’s main role was...

SF Giants' roster - who won't be back in 2012? →
In modern baseball, the stability of the Giants’ roster from 2010 to 2011 was unique. Juan Uribe left for Los Angeles and Edgar Renteria for Cincinnati. Aside from that, the bulk of the World Series championship team returned. This winter will be different. Though key players such as Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Brian Wilson, Aubrey Huff, Freddy Sanchez, Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval are...

Maybe it’s time for Barry Zito and the Giants to... →
According to John Shea, Barry Zito could be activated as early as today. As such, it seems like an appropriate time to re-evaluate his role as a Giant… The Zito contract was an obvious mistake from day one — no question about it. Multi-year $100MM contracts for pitchers are inherently risky, and that’s exacerbated by the fact that Zito wasn’t even much of an ace when he signed with the Giants....
