    Better than 3/24. 6.6M/year I can deal with. Better if it was two years, but oh well.

    We basically gave him Freddy Sanchez's annual average salary. I can live with that. I'm surprised we caved in and gave him the 3rd guaranteed year though.

    But, it is nice to have our 1-2 locked up.

    Why are you surprised? The team put themselves in a position where they really could not afford to lose him due to every other 2b option being completely underwhelming or just plain awful.

    I'm surprised because the latest report said we offered him 2 years + vesting option. There was no mention of 3 guaranteed years.

    It was on the SF Giants rumors fb page for a little while, but I was still shocked as well.

    Well, they probably saw the other options for second base in 2013 and decided to just say **** it and give him a third year.

    Don't really blame them either.

    Will Scutaro still be productive at age 40? No...but the hope is he makes up most of that value next year and in 2014.

    Which he just may. He's been really consistent and durable the last 5 seasons. If you assume he declines gradually instead of falling off a cliff this deal might still be OK even if year three we get little to no value.

    cool, better be worth it. Because this pretty much ends any chance of Swisher coming here.

    TBH, i'm not excited to have the exact same team as last year, its nice to have at least 1 different guy in there.

    My guess is they still will add a LF and RP, but I know what you mean. Who knows maybe Sabean will surprise us with a LF via trade. Willingham perhaps?
