    Like this should terrify me, but also, it’s the Captain.

    This is why I could never be a beat writer, because after he said that I would have derailed the presser and asked Ilitch 8 follow ups asking him to explain how and why his hockey team president was involved. Because it might be a completely reasonable thing. But it could also be incredibly stupid and I'd like to know which was which before I moved on.

    It's better than Rod Wood coming out of the family office to help hire a shitlord idiot.

    Harris today: “we must dominate the strike zone “

    Harris after Baez first game: “Hello Giants, can I come back?”

    So are we to assume guys like Garko stay in place, at least for the first year or two?

    I don't think that should be assumed. And the timing of this hire makes it more likely he fires people and brings in a new crew than if he was hired at the end of October from a timing standpoint.

    I do think some of the recent developmental hires were pretty well regarded in the industry, though, which means he might be more likely to keep at least some of them.

    Does this mean we are getting rid of the Castros, and every other shitty player on the roster?

    He pretty much came out and said the rest of MLB thinks the Tigers farm system and player development is a joke

    The league might think that, but I think it's more likely he's using the Giants as a cover to not answer a question that he didn't want to answer.

    Here are walk rates among our regulars. I doubt they move Baez, unless they eat a lot of money. Hopefully we get rid of both Castros, and I can see Candelario being non tendered. Schoop will get released. You can’t bring him back. Now that rosters are 26 players, you can probably waste a roster spot on Cabrera, but he should probably be forced out/retire.

    • Schoop - 3.6%
    • W. Castro - 4.0%
    • Reyes - 4.0%
    • H. Castro - 4.0%
    • Baez - 4.7%
    • Candelario- 6.1%
    • Cabrera - 6.3%

    Yzerman has said he likes to learn from successful programs so I’m guessing he had to travel to Chicago to find a functional MLB franchise to study.

    I have not paid attention to the team since Harris had his PC, but I just saw that Manning has some arm fatigue. What could go wrong?

    Maybe Harris can get a 2nd round comp pick for him. Nice to see the highest positional prospect over last 10 years is a bust. Thanks Avila

    silver lining is everybody picked after him has sucked ass. One of the pitchers had an ERA over 10.00 this year lol.

    Better not play more than 1 or 2 days a week, and should be batting no higher than 7th.

    That's fine, who cares. Next year won't be much better than this year, and when he breaks down he'll retire and have a day in August.

    not sure how you can make that assumption. Division sucks. This team can easily contend next year if the right moves are made.

    playing a negative WAR player multiple days a week though is not going to get you towards that goal.

    No chance, IMO. Based on the quotes from him and Harris, he was very involved in the process of hiring Harris.

    Coolbaugh and Hessman were always going to go after this disaster. Santiago was just a holdover from the previous regime he kept around. I think he and Paul had a previous history so he's the only guy who is a surprise at all to me.
