This changes everything: Giants president Farhan Zaidi agrees to a five-year deal – The Athletic

Friedman and Zaidi may be competing for the same guys.

And how’s this for intrigue? Before the Giants and Dodgers meet on the field next season, Zaidi and Friedman could find themselves in a more immediate form of competition. Zaidi is almost certain to hire a GM. Friedman, unless he decides to keep Zaidi’s former chair empty, will be in the market for one, himself. And here’s betting their lists will have some overlap.

Will Zaidi seek to renew with Billy Owens, his former colleague with the A’s? Or would he be attracted to someone more like-minded with which to collaborate and spark ideas? Would he value an executive with administrative skills? Or a more traditional scouting background? Is it possible that the Giants already have vetted some of the possible candidates (Kim Ng, Jason McLeod, Chaim Bloom, Matt Arnold, Mike Elias, etc.)?

Zaidi should find no shortage of qualified people eager to work in a front office where out-of-the-box thinking will be encouraged.
