If you’re wondering who on the San Francisco Giants coaching staff has a good chance at being a future manager someday, wonder no more… Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe asked a few GM’s, players, writers, scouts, other coaches, and Giants third base coach Tim Flannery was one of the bench coaches that were often mentioned, because people love Flannery’s style and approach to players.
If you weren’t already a big Flannery fan, I’m sure you will be after this… Flannery has donated $96,000 to help with care for injured Giants fan Bryan Stow. Stow was severely beaten outside of Dodgers Stadium on Opening Day 2011.
Cafardo also mentioned that the Giants have been through a lot with Pablo Sandoval concerning his weight. He then goes on to say that this could be Sandoval’s last season in a Giants uniform, even if he has a good season. Sandoval will be a free agent after the season if he and the Giants don’t agree to a contract extension.
The Giants announced on Friday (1/24/14) that they acquired left-hander David Huff from the New York Yankees in exchange for cash considerations. The Giants now have 40 players on their 40-man roster.
Since we’re talking about Huff, I might as well talk about one that you’re more familiar with… Over the offseason Aubrey Huff officially retired, and announced that he’s making a transition into broadcasting college baseball games for the Pac-12 Networks. Huff put in 13 seasons in the MLB and won two World Series championships (both with the Giants in 2010 & 2012).
