  • 2018-19 San Francisco Giants Offseason

    Ok, the Giants finished with a disappointing 73-89 W-L which included a 5-21 W-L record in September, the worst month in franchise history. Where do the Giants go from here? The Giants fired Bobby Evans as GM and they are now looking for a new GM.

    IMO, this will be the most important offseason in many years. Not only the hiring of the new GM, but there are many decisions to be made about players. Pence, Belt, Panik, even MadBum all have questions that need to be answered.

    Clearly (at least to me) it is time to reset the team. There is some hope, as some of the kids show promise, and the team needs to nurture them. So other than Crawford and Buster (aint trading them) the team needs a do-over. Lets get started.

      I've always been a big Brandon Belt supporter but it may be time to trade him and get the best prospects possible. But, Belt's trade value is probably down right now due to his season ending surgery. Plus, he'll be 31 next season.

      And I agree about the prospects. None of the guys who came up this season are really star material but I think a few of them can be developed into productive regulars. That's important going forward. Develop them into productive players and add a star player to lead them. That could be Joey Bart. Bart can really rake though he still needs time. I think Bart will start 2019 at San Jose. Heliot Ramos was just ok in 2018 but he's so young and he got rave reviews from scouts. But Ramos is probably 3 years away. I can't see Ramos reaching SF until 2021 at the earliest.

        Looks like no rebuild this offseason.

          So it looks like the Giants are really serious about getting Bryce Harper. He's going to be expensive.

            What's really weird is evidently the Padres have called both Harper and Machado. What are the odds that either sign there?

              Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced today that he will retire at the end of the 2019 season. Baseball’s longest-tenured skipper, Bochy is entering his 13th season as the Giants’ manager. In that time, he’s overseen three World Series championships (2010, 2012 and 2014) and helped guide the Giants to a 979-965 record.
