Yesterday’s parade was a success. All the players had a great time, and the fans got to celebrate winning the 2012 World Series with their San Francisco Giants. The only downfall to me was the parade was on Halloween, so I couldn’t attend. I went to my kids Halloween parade at school. However, I did get a chance to watch the Giants parade on TV.
Now that the season and parade is over. It’s time for manager Bruce Bochy and GM Brian Sabean to start thinking about next year.
The Giants must decide if they want to make offers to try an bring back Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro and Jeremy Affeldt. These guys are free agents and I’m sure will have some nice offers coming their way.
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says (via Twitter) Affeldt is aware that Brandon League signed a 3-year, $22.5 million contract with the Dodgers. Which means the market has been set for Affeldt’s services. Affeldt also said if he doesn’t re-sign, he will cherish his San Francisco memories.
Baggarly also says (in another tweet) Scutaro’s clear 1st choice is to re-sign with the Giants. Scutaro joked that he’s looking for 15-year, 3 thousand million dollars.
Here is a list of a few other players that might be on their way out.
Ryan Theriot (would still bring value off the bench)
Xavier Nady (no need for Nady)
Brad Penny (could return in a long relief role)
Aubrey Huff (his time as a Giant has come to an end)
Guillermo Mota (could return on a 1-year deal, doubtful)
Freddy Sanchez (likely retire)
Melky Cabrera (doubtful return, likely sign elsewhere)
