San Francisco Giants Tickets

The San Francisco Giants officials didn't tolerate really well the dismal performance from the past season (when they only managed to finish on the third place in NL West), so they decided that it's time to increase their spending and fortify their rooster, hoping they will manage to recapture their former glory from the 2010 and 2012 seasons. And they have been, without any doubt, one of the most active teams in this off season period, letting some weaker players leave, bringing back a few familiar faces and signing two new free agents.

Let's start by looking at the departures. One of the most expensive, although not surprising departure, was that of Barry Zito, which received a compensation of $7 million from the Giants for being fired from the team, but that made sense because his performance didn't justified his $18 million annual contract. Also, no one was surprised that the veterans Jose Mijares and Andres Torres, which were both at the end of their contracts and had a really disappointing performance last season, didn't get any new offers. The departures of Johnny Monell and Sandy Rosario were also quite predictable - although they had a decent last season, but they were both passed by other younger players, and there was no much sense to keep them. The list of departures ends with two surprises - Chad Gaudin (which was one of Giant's most reliable pitchers during the last seasons, but who has some legal problems, which is probably the reason why Giants let him ho) and Francisco Peguero. We give Giants an A- grade in the departures compartment.

Hunter Pence was allowed to hit the free-agent market once again, but his heart was in San Francisco so he didn't wait for any offers from the open market, but accepted immediately Giant's GM Brian Sabean's offer of $90 million for a five year contract. Don't get me wrong, that's a good contract, but he could have received more from the open market. Pence wanted to stay with Giants and the Giants wanted Pence to stay, so we can say that this was a good deal for both and give Giants an A grade for securing the deal.

Tim Lincecum was offered a new contract ($35 million for a two years contract), which seems to be quite excessive. His last two seasons were rather disappointing and he is a third or fourth starter. Still, that was probably a goodwill gesture and a marketing investment (considering that he is one of the most loved players in San Francisco and he sells more jerseys than any other player from the team). Still the price is too high so we can give a B grate at most for this deal.

On the other hand, San Francisco Giants made a really good deal when they signed Javier Lopez. He is not only one of the best left-handed relief specialists, coming after an amazing year (with 1.068 WHIP and 1.83 ERA), but he was also rather cheap - only $13 million for a three years contract (as a compassion Giants paid $18 millions last year for Jeremy Affeldt, their fellow left-handed reliever, who had a AT&T Park Ticketsmuch worse season compared with Lopez). Definitely an A grade for this deal.

GM Brian Sabean said at the end of the last season that their intention is to rebuild the team's pitching staff, which was the secret behind their greatest success (in seasons 2010 and 2012). And the biggest signing outside the organization was without any doubt Tim Hudson. Although he's well passed his best years (38 years now), he is still in a great shape and he compensates with movement, location and savvy what he misses in terms of velocity when it comes of getting opposing hitters out. The contract - $23 million for two-years, sounds like a good deal for both the club and the player. Once again we give an A grade for this deal.

An overall grade? Definitely at least an A-, and while we can't guarantee that San Francisco Giants will be able to repeat the performances from 2010 and 2012, we are sure that this season will be a better one compared with 2013. Go Giants!
