Now that the San Francisco Giants have won the World Series. I’m sure there are a few of you that wish you went back in time like Marty McFly and did some Sports Betting. The Giants are not having a loud offseasn. They are quietly trying to keep the core team together, and mix and match a few players.
They succeeded in their top offseason priority and that was re-signing Aubrey Huff. He was a big piece of the Giants success. The Giants tried to bring back Juan Uribe, but he decided that he wanted to go down south to the hated Dodgers. The Giants were quick to sign Miguel Tejada to replace Uribe. Tejada is on the decline, but still a nice replacement for Uribe. Pat Burrell also re-signed for a hometown discount of $1 million.
Now you ask what’s left that the Giants are trying to do? It’s find a backup shortstop. Yes, they have Mark DeRosa and Mike Fontenot. That’s just not going to cut it if Tejada goes down, so the Giants are hoping that Edgar Renteria will return in a backup role for $1 million.
The 2011 lineup is starting off better than it did at the start of the 2010 season and they won the World Series. Only time will tell how the 2011 Giants finish.
