San Francisco Giants Offseason
The Giants let Renteria go while re-signing both Huff and Ross only to find out they completely overpaid for mediocre talent. This time around, the Giants took the series in 2012 with the help of simliar position players such as Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan.
Both players were on the last year of their current contract and now both are far richer due to the Giants front office dishing out money to keep their championship team intact. Pagan received 4 years and $40 million while Scutaro received 3 years at $20 million. They also re-signed their top long/middle reliever Jeremy Affeldt to a 3 year $15 million deal.
Can the Giants expect to repeat with the squad they have, expecting a bounce-back year from Tim Lincecum and a potentially lethal bullpen if Brian Wilson chooses to re-sign with the Giants and combine with Sergio Romo for the best 1-2 punch pen in the MLB.
Pablo Sandoval is locked up and Buster Posey is not yet arbitration eligible, but rest assured the Giants will do whatever it takes to extend their All-Star, MVP catcher who has won 2 World Series in 3 seasons with San Francisco. This team looks as though they will have some competition within the NL West this season, but with their balance and team-first mentality, they'll be tough to dethrone.
