Solid signing, but a bit too much

every contract is too much, is there even a point saying stuff like that anymore?

Robertson got 4/$46 mil. If you take away two months from Romos past year then his numbers look very similar to Robertsons over the past 5 or 6 years. Its a bargain when you compare it to that deal.

And then you factor in combining Romo with Jean Machi and you basically have Robertson.

Throw in Casilla and you basically have Mariano Rivera at half the price. So genius.

Don't forget about Yusmeiro Petit who also makes spot starts. Add in those innings with the other 3 guys and you guys are looking at having another Madison Bumgarner on the team.

No you don't.

Robertson last 3 years average: 66 games, 64 innings, 1.7 WAR
Romo last 3 years average: 66 games, 57 innings, 0.6 WAR

You'd need a pitcher expected to produce 1.1 WAR in 7 innings for that to be true.
Machi is certainly not that pitcher.

You know what I meant.

I do know what you meant, and you're wrong.

Combining Romo's and Machi's performance doesn't give you anything like Robertson's

Combining McCarthy's and Anderson's performance gives you quite similar production to Hamels or Shields.

I could have used just Petit and made it close. In 2013 he had a .8 so it comes to like 1.4 combined. I just threw a name out

Let's see if that's true


No you don't.

Nope. Petit didn't come anywhere near close to producing 1.1 WAR in 7 innings.

Try again.

This. How often are we saying "Oh my god that is such a bargain".

It's only 2 years. If the Giants want to pay it.....have at it.

The only issue I have with this, isn't the money, it's that we may be hearing now that the Giants don't have money to do other things.

Well then you probably didn't spend your money very wisely.

That's just a BS excuse (being short on money). Seems to be an annual thing with this team. Hitters don't want to sign here and Sabean doesn't seem comfortable making legitimate big money offers to top free agents who haven't already been successful wearing the orange and black.

So in turn we get weird comments like that from upper management to the press. We've lost Sandoval and Morse, while only adding a super weak McGehee after winning another World Series and selling out hundreds of games in a row. They need some sort of excuse to throw out to the local fans.

If the Giants weren't paying:

Lincecum - 18
Scutaro - 6

That 24 million could help, but the team should be able to run a 160 million dollar payroll annually.

Oh definitely....and they can obviously extend it even more if they where committed to being a perennial playoff team.

Also, at a certain point you have to realize dead weight is dead weight and not let yourself be hamstrung to players that can hardly contribute. Giants should consider themselves in need of an additional starting pitcher, with Lincecum and his money not even playing in to the picture outside of a little hope that he can be a weapon out of the bullpen/depth.

This is the Giants MO, overpay on AAV to get less years, I like it.

And the Giants brass saying they are out of money is ********, all of their signings equate to about the same if not less than they would've paid Lester so unless they were planning on signing Lester and nobody for the gaping holes at third and in left field then there is still plenty of money available.
