    I am referring to Evans' first big promotion - director of minor league administration in 1998 - one year after Sabean became GM.

    I am quite relieved no one here is the Giants' GM.

    Possibly. But, that is no sure thing. Can we blame the front office for wanting to employing a mix of signing free agents while keeping high draft picks?



    Two points to this.

    I see Vogelsong providing more value on a 1 year deal than Garza with an expensive 4/5 year deal. I'm optimistic about Vogelsong's 2014. Projected 180IP and 4.15 FIP would be great.

    That is accurate. For a fifth starter, I don't consider a 4.5 xFIP to be outrageous. You take what you can get from a #5.

    I see Blanco as a slightly below average hitter with plus defense and base...

    A prudent move would be to sign Jeff Baker. Baker has a...

    I'm quite confident Haren and Hudson could give us, at minimum, a combined 340 IP of 3.75 ERA. That would be a huge upgrade.

    The "no excuse" to not have a good LF is unrealistic. There are, what, 5 "good" LF in all of baseball, at most (Trout, Marte, Holliday, Upton, and maybe Cespedes). It's not easy to just find one.
