17 hours 7 min ago

A source close to Sabean confirmed to the Daily News that he very much would like another challenge in his life. He’s going stir crazy in San Francisco with essentially nothing to do (in the role of a special assistant) with the Giants. But the real attraction for Sabean would be the fact that it’s New York and it’s the Mets, the source said.

MLB rumors: Mets could target ex-Giants executive to run baseball operations

Fri, 2021-10-22 06:49

Former Giants general manager executive vice president Brian Sabean, who was at the helm for the Giants’ three World Series titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014, stopped running the team’s baseball operations in 2018, though he remained as a scout. But his successful resume prompted The Post to speculate if he could be the right person to take over the Mets.

Quintana and Jewell elect free agency

Fri, 2021-10-22 05:00

I’m a touch late to this news after it slipped through the radar, but San Francisco Giants pitchers José Quintana and Jake Jewell have elected free agency, after finishing the season with the AAA Sacramento River Cats. Both pitchers could return to the organization, but they’ll have a chance to test the waters, and search for the best situation (in Quintana’s case that might be a Major League offer). Quintana joined the Giants late in the season, and was quickly added to the active roster.

Where the 40-man roster sits at the start of the offseason

Thu, 2021-10-21 22:49

The San Francisco Giants ended the season with 45 players on their 40-man roster, the result of a handful of players finding themselves on the Injured List when things wrapped up. Many — most, even — of those players will be on the 40-man roster for the next few months and into the 2022 season, may we be so lucky as to have a 2022 season. But many will not.

The Coleumn: San Disappoint pt. 2: 2015

Wed, 2021-10-20 18:18

One week ago, I said that the San Diego Padres were the biggest disappointment of 2021. I also mentioned how this is not the first time we have seen this movie. Sure, nothing comes within miles of the Padres’ disappointing season, except for their World Series losses in 1984 and 1998, but this one is a little different.

Wed, 2021-10-20 17:50

The San Francisco Giants have eight arbitration-eligible players heading into the offseason, a relatively modest number after having 13 such players a year ago. And with the team balancing their attempt to replicate 2021’s success, and their desire to find ways to improve, it will be interesting to see what route they go in. Here are the eight arbitration-eligible Giants, with their salary estimates courtesy of MLB Trade Rumors, a historically very accurate site with these things.

Three Questions Giants Have to Answer at Start of MLB Offseason

Wed, 2021-10-20 06:40

There's not a lot of time to sit back, though, especially for the people who put a 107-win team together. Farhan Zaidi and Scott Harris have a roster full of veteran free agents, some big-name arbitration-eligible players, and huge early decisions to make on guys like Buster Posey, Johnny Cueto and Brandon Belt. Posey will be back in some form, Cueto is expected to have his 2022 team option bought out and Belt is a prime candidate for a qualifying offer, but those moves are just the beginning.

From the Dugout: Ending a championship series on a dumb play

Wed, 2021-10-20 05:10

Tue, 2021-10-19 13:09

The San Francisco Giants plan to exercise Buster Posey's $22 million club option for the 2022 season as long as the veteran catcher wants to keep playing after a stellar year. Posey, whose contract includes a $3 million buyout, helped lead the Giants to a franchise-record 107 wins and their first NL West title since 2012 by playing regularly down the stretch this year as he demonstrated his health and durability during his 12th major league season.
