Offseason Recap, Quiet Winter Still Brings Promise


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.

    I said ‘Hey.. we want some Posey!’

    Like the Too Live Crew song, so you get the humor behind it.

    I like the Sabean approach, like last year, he will search throughout the season to fill the needs as they arrive while keeping together a solid force to be reckoned with. I do wish they had that bat we all dream of, but at what cost would it come? We need an Adrian Gonzalez, but we got an Aubrey.. We need a Carlos Gonzalez but we got an Andres.. We need a Jayson Werth but we got a Cody.. and of all these needs our guys won the title.. So lets let the boys play the game they already won, and the arms carry the torch and check out the results.. I will be cheering all the way.. God bless the black and orange and Merrrrry Chriiiisstmas!!

    It’s been a quiet but good offseason for the Giants. They did bring back Burrell and have signed Tejada. I’m glad there is no big egos on the team, so they can play as a team.
