Giants - Signed Sanchez
San Francisco Giants - Signed 2B Freddy Sanchez to a 2-year, $12 million contract.
Nothing filthy about this signing. Sanchez had a $8 million club option for 2009 with a $600K buyout, so the Giants aren’t even really even quite paying him that. Sanchez is a roughly league-average 2B at this point and while second basemen seem to have an annoying tendency to go splat in their early 30s, a 2-year contract minimizes the risk. A collapse for Sanchez would probably look like 260/290/360 with above-average defense, which is bad, but not a team killer at the price. The main problem for the Giants is that projection would have made him one of the team’s most valuable offensive players in 2009. The starting lineup, from Rowand to Rent-a-rrhea should simply turn over their salaries to Kung-Fu Panda, given that he was the only reason Lincecum and Cain weren’t crying in fetal positions in the dugout after their 7th 1-0 losses.
Perversely, this might have been a better signing for the Giants if they had paid a little more. After all, someone who wants the Giants to succeed should hardly want there to be spare money to bring back Pop Tarts Molina.
