SF Giants Strategy: Which Remaining Free Agents Are Worth Overpaying?

Locked On Giants – Daily Podcast On The San Francisco Giants

05-01-2024 • 33 minutos

It's no secret that the San Francisco Giants have had a hard time luring big-name free agents to play for the team. With that in mind, which of the remaining free agents would be worth "overpaying" in order to finalize a deal? All of the players remaining who are projected to land deals north of $100M—Blake Snell, Cody Bellinger, Shota Imanaga, Matt Chapman, and Jordan Montgomery—are discussed. Not all would be worth it, but some would. Clayton Kershaw on a one- or two-year deal might also be worth "overpaying," although the chances of Kershaw pitching for the SF Giants are essentially zero.

Among the other questions asked and answered on today's mailbag edition of Locked On Giants:

Do you think MLB should put rules in place to encourage more free agent activity within certain timeframes to increase off-season excitement, similar to what the NBA has?

Thoughts on what could make the MLB off-season more exciting? I’d favor a deadline for free agents. Yoshinobu Yamamoto (Dodgers) and Jung Hoo Lee (Giants) had deadlines, and that didn’t impact their ability to maximize their value. I’m just sick of waiting on Scott Boras clients every off-season.

What pitcher is projected to start the second game of the year for the SF Giants as of today?

Been lots of weird quotes: “break even,” “employee benefits,” coming from the front office this offseason. What does this say about the Giants as a organization and the direction they are heading?
