Giants Go Discount Shopping

As the Winter Meetings come to a close the San Francisco Giants didn’t make any major moves, and it doesn’t look like they will. reports that general manager Brian Sabean said that the big ticket items on free agency, Matt Holliday and Jason Bay are too expensive for the team. FOX also reports that third baseman Adrian Beltre is even out of the Giants price range, which is unfortunate for the fans of the team.

“They’re beyond our limits,” he said. “We don’t have the wherewithal to pay them the dollars they want.”

With the Giants pitching staff being as good as it is this team is very close to contention. One or two big bats could easily put them over the top in the National League West. Not even attempting to land one of the marquis guys has to be very disheartening.

So it looks like once again the Giants are going to go discount shopping, looking for the almighty bargain. There’s still some guys out there that could really benefit this team but wouldn’t it of been nice to see them spend some money? You know, bring in a slugger who could strike some sort of fear into a pitcher?
