I’m done reading these updates until the contracts are signed. These guys are all full of shit.


LegacyLemur

Nah just Boob and Heyman

Lol jump into this dick


chiddyshadyfiasco

Got em


BagRight8939

pls not carlos


_unsourced

If them losing out on Aaron Judge causes us to lose out on Correa, I'm gonna be pissed. Why is it always the Yankees


BagRight8939

when in doubt the twins will be fucked by the yankees


cooljammer00

It's like how the Twins playoff losing streak includes the Athletics too, but Minnesota only ever blames the Yankees. "SF signed Correa?! It's the Yankees' fault!"


Yaboilikemup

It's easy to blame the Yankees when 13 out of 16 losses were against them


cooljammer00

If the Yankees really are Minnesota Kryptonite, then it sounds like they had 3 whole chances to break the streak.


bearinsac

I don’t think you have to worry about us getting Correa, we always lose out on major free agents as well. I have a feeling the Padres are going to offer him the world.


_unsourced

I'm not sure about the Padres. Doing that would basically signal that Tatis is done in SD which I'm not sure they want to get into at the moment


Odd_Surprise134

They have been planning on moving him to the OF regardless, all it would signal would be Kim moved to the bench


somefunmaths

Or, more accurately, Cronenworth and Kim shifting right in the infield. The “San Diego Shortstops” jokes have been that there is a real possibility that the Padres line up on opening day with a starting lineup that has 6 of 8 fielding positions occupied by shortstops (Nola, Cronenworth, Kim, Machado, ???, Tatis).


Odd_Surprise134

Most of Kim’s worth comes from his glove, would they really be fine giving that up?


somefunmaths

What do you mean giving up Kim’s glove? Four gold glove-quality middle infielders playing 1B (Cronenworth) to 3B (Machado) across the infield, with Kim and whoever the Padres would sign in this scenario up the middle, is *using* the value of that glove. The answer the Padres are entertaining to “how do you align/build an infield post-shift?” is trot out MLB-caliber shortstops at all 4 infield slots. Is it a good idea? I don’t know. Is it cost effective? Probably not. Is it something I’d love to see? Yes.


Odd_Surprise134

What I’m saying is that all those guys except Kim have exceptional bats and gloves. Kim, being the best fielder and the worst bat should stay at short. Unless y’all sign Dansby or Correa, then I could see Kim move to second


bearinsac

All I’m going off is the Padres offered $360 mil to Turner. I’d imagine they’d do the same with Correa. I’m likely wrong, but they seem to be showing up with major offers for every player.


somefunmaths

You must’ve missed the Padres going in on Turner and talking about Xander. Tatis to the outfield is a real possibility that the front office has entertained. These signings would be for someone to play alongside Tatis.


punch_rockgroinpull

No worries. We don't get the big fish.


thediesel26

Bro they’re gonna chuck absolutely ridiculous money at him. Farhan’s blood is definitely up.


ScottSummersEyes

if the giants fail to sign any of judge turner or correa and instead sign dansby swanson i will become a hockey fan


SiphenPrax

How are the San Jose Sharks doing?


sanguinearrowfall

Yeah, not good... they're in the basement along with my team: the anaheim ducks


msc80451

Need to bring back those sweet Mighty Ducks unis for good and trash the orange ones.


sanguinearrowfall

Agree, I miss the eggplant jerseys like you wouldn't believe


msc80451

Top-tier unis worthy of the Stanley Cup.


IowaIsAwful

We suck but won’t suck enough to get Bedard. It’s bleak.


sanguinearrowfall

I feel like our teams have a good chance of finishing dead last, but we will never pick #1 overall, probably will go to Chicago again. The Ducks are coming up on 30 years and have yet to pick first overall despite some real stinker years. Fortunately this draft is stacked 1-4 with Bedard, Fantilli, Michkov, and Carlsson that it's a decent year to be terrible regardless as at least 3 of those have franchise player ceilings.


AloneWithAShark

We're in the running. The point total is inflated a bit since we've played more than most of the other contenders. Not that it matters they'd never let us win the lottery.


MCPtz

Sharks are doing that bad. Bottom 5 right now in points / game, last I checked.


IowaIsAwful

EK65 keeps us from being worst of the worst. Mans is too good.


Sigmaintellectual

Bad time to be a hockey fan in the Bay Area


BagRight8939

if the giants don’t fail to sign carlos correa i will become a hockey fan


IAmNotKevinDurant_35

Lol we're not even getting Dansby Swanson


sfp33

Dansby is good what


Giantranger49

He's alright. Mediocre bat, decent defence


sfp33

Dude hit 25 HRs last year, won a Gold Glove, and had a 5.7 WAR I’ll take that any day of the week


mubbcsoc

I think where he's coming from is that Dansby's best hitting year is a 115 OPS+. That's not fantastic for someone who is going to be demanding a big contract. He's never strung the bat together for a full season either. His second half last year was below league average. Meanwhile Correa has 6/8 seasons with a higher OPS+ than Dansby's best.


Giantranger49

Crawford had a 6.1 BWar in 2021. Should Giants have signed him to a 200 mill contract the next year? One year outliers dont mean much


Realistic_Rip_148

What did he do the rest of his career


sfp33

Posted virtually identical numbers in ‘21?


Realistic_Rip_148

He had an OPS+ of 99


BuffaloInTheRye

He’s got one of the worst shortstop arms in baseball if you actually dig into the metrics, sweet glove though. Would love to see the Giants drop $100 mil plus on a downgrade from Crawford 😈


[deleted]

That’s at least worth one Jeff McNeill


MichaelPFrancesa

I'd consider him better than mediocre.


CozzyCoz

Mediocre? Did we watch the same season... he ks a lot but he was top 10 in hits last year with 99 runs and 96 rbis


Giantranger49

One year of good hitting during your contract year does not make you not mediocre.


twolvesfan217

Yep. He’s actually been below average (or even well below average) more often than not based on OPS+


Hobbit_Feet45

Nah


SoCalvikes

Hey let's not go crazy now


Tacitus_99

Doesn’t bode well for the Giants future in signing FA’s that they couldn’t even lure life-long fan and the home town hero even with the highest offer.


Lil-pants

The giants have never been very good at signing FAs lol


metsy

Well, except for that one in the early 90s. That worked out pretty well.


mubbcsoc

It's been the same story as long as I can remember. Even coming off multiple WS wins we were the bridesmaid.


ThenWriter6

Lmao the only time we signed a big time FA and got a bat was Bonds. And he only came to SF cause he grew up with us when his Dad played on the team & the fact that Willie Mays is his freaking godfather. That’s what it takes for us to get a FA


boog1evilleUSA

We'll take Dansby


oscillatingquark

Be a 49ers fan at least they get free agents


AmsterdamJimmy420

Nice I prefer that to Nimmo. Was afraid If Judge signed in SF Nimmo would be in pinstripes


FHPirates_21

Same, I was worried Yankees would sign Correa and Nimmo or Rodon with the Judge money which would have been a lot smarter use of resources. They're still super top heavy on offence.


StrikingElk5288

They might still get Rodon


mr_grission

It would've been hard to imagine Nimmo without his luxurious flowing beard


AmsterdamJimmy420

His what now? Is this a wooosh moment for me? He’s clean shaven?


mr_grission

I'm being sarcastic because he's maybe the least bearded guy in the MLB


AmsterdamJimmy420

Lol just making sure haha


Sacrifice_bhunt

Can’t wait to finish 2nd in all those ones, too.


TheNotoriousJN

Judge signing has just killed off our hopes of Correa completely


Hobbit_Feet45

It’s not because of the Giants, he’s just going to use them to run up his price so he can sign with the Dodgers, or the Padres, or the Mets or somewhere people actually want to play for some reason.


HeadEnterprise

2nd fiddle pickings


afkstudios

Hey any second fiddle would fit right in here, what do you think SF stands for


ThiccMaryMagdalene

Danby


IAmNotKevinDurant_35

Fuck this franchise relegate us to AAA


JimothyButtlicker69

Haniger puts up 45 HR next season, Joey Bart hits above the Mendoza line, boom. Just like that the Giants get the wild card and promptly get knocked out by the Padres who manage to stay mediocre again too.


IAmNotKevinDurant_35

If all those things happened, I'd lick your butt jimothy


TraderJerry69

Mitch has to be healthy for more than 2 months, but he does have the potential to ball


Hobbit_Feet45

Right right..


HelpMeWithMyHWpls

Stay away from my X /s


Darksidedrive

Not super filled in on San Fran, but wouldn’t the next logical target be Nimmo, or at least Nimmo AND another big name, would probably be spending similar money


mubbcsoc

Correa and Nimmo would be a massive success.


Hobbit_Feet45

I give us a 0% chance


Giantranger49

Nimmo seems so overrated for a $100 mill contract. but they got no choice to save face


[deleted]

[удалено]


Giantranger49

He's a HUGE injury risk. 69, 55 92. Those are the amount of games he played before last year. He's only getting older


_Winterspring_

Can play anywhere in the OF, elite OBP, solid bat. He's worth it.


Apprehensive_Tea_106

As a Cards fan, I want Dansby. Gonna be cheaper for a decent bat and a potential GG defense.


boog1evilleUSA

Stop


Apprehensive_Tea_106

NO U


nsbbeachguy

Super-conservative Dansby Swanson in SF would be something.


MarkerMagnum

Wouldn’t be the first Georgia boy to be embraced by the city… Posey was generally quiet about politics, but is a white man from Leesburg. Make your own inferences. A guy who goes undercover in rodeos from small town North Carolina is another fan favorite.


AutisticHistoryLover

Thinking Correa and Bogaerts may not happen. Want one of them but would be perfectly okay with Swanson.


Zapplarang

I’ll believe it when I see it
