San Francisco Giants’ vice president of baseball operations, and former general manager-Brian Sabean- was recently featured on a podcast. When asked about the Giants offseason moves thus far, and moves yet to come. Sabean stated that:
“We’re coming to the realization that to do what we need to do, to be competitive to start the year, and hopefully let that roll into also making some moves at the deadline is that we’re going to have to make some tough choices. We may have to move some payroll which may mean moving some people that we perhaps under normal circumstances would not. It’s really a deep exercise and we’re not done with the deep dive yet as to how we best go about it.” -Heard on the TK Show
Sabean also mentioned the luxury tax as a concern. San Francisco comes off a season in which they were 64-98. From the very beginning, it was speculated that the Giants would undergo drastic changes this offseason; however, the vocalization of those pursuits by the Giants front office, make it a reality.
Buckle up. It’s going to be a long offseason.
