Giants President on the radio talking about Manny

The Giants President Larry Baer was on the radio this morning in the Bay
Thumbnail image for Manny.jpgArea. He said the Giants have been in contact with Scott Boras. Didn’t say they were trying to pursue him hard and also didn’t say they weren’t trying to pursue him. He did say that Brian Sabean is trying to work on something and that could be signing a free agent or making a trade. Larry also said that if Brian is unable to make a move. The Giants front office wouldn’t be upset. They will have their heads up and would be happy with the moves they already made for the season. They don’t want to just spike a payroll for a season and then have to bring it back down the following year. They want their payroll to go up a little every year. Larry was talking about the economy and how that’s affected the free agent signings. There is a lot of players that still haven’t signed this off-season yet.
 
Still no real answer as to if the Giants are really trying to sign Manny or not. Sounds like they would do it if the right deal comes along, but they won’t try to outbid anyone just to be desperate to get him. I guess we all have to wait and see what Manny decides he wants to do.

    King, I think what we are seeing now with Manny is that regardless of how good his bat is, teams aren’t willing to fork over the big bucks to a player who may, or may not, show up to play on any given day. It will be very interesting to see where Manny ends up and how much he will get paid.

    I always get a kick out of reading comments that have to do with Manny. It is funny how you can tell which ones are from the jaded nation. They are all so chapped that they missed the WS last year, and they know that if the front office and just kept Manny happy, they would probably have another title.
    This is the real funny part
