Giants Notes and Links
It has been a while since I have done this but with Spring Training wrapping up it seemed like a good time to try to catch up with all of the Giants news.
The Giants and Buster Posey are working on a big contract extension. Also SI.com has some thoughts on what he is worth.
I think it is probably better to wait a bit, they aren't likely to get a huge discount buying after an MVP season and he is at a minimum staying for this season plus three more. If they get it done great, if they don't well there is plenty of time down the road.
Keith Law has some interesting things to say about some Giants, first he scouted Tim Lincecum last week and he was having similar issues to last year, he had some more on Lincecum and the coming year and he also listed Brandon Belt on his breakout list.
The Giants made some cuts and are looking at Nick Noonan as the second backup infielder. All I can say is that the Giants bench might be the worst I can remember in a while, those late pinch hitters are not going to put much fear into opposing managers.
Bay Area Sports Guy has some needed thoughts on how to properly handle the injury to Dodgers star Hanley Ramirez.
Last but not least, if you are looking for tickets, TiqIQ's job is finding the best deals and sellers out there for you, and for the Giants you may want to have a look at Razorgator for San Francisco Giants tickets.
