San Francisco Giants

In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have started my San Francisco Giants 2023 position previews by writing about the one position that had the least security. And indeed, just a few days after I wrote about how we don’t know the Giants plan at catcher, the team reportedly signed veteran Roberto Pérez. This admittedly doesn’t change anything.

It sounds like another potential Boston Red Sox target is signing elsewhere. Boston reportedly was in talks with free agent two-time Gold Glove-winning catcher Roberto Perez, but the longtime Cleveland Guardian ultimately ended up agreeing to a deal to join the San Francisco Giants, according to MassLive.com’s Chris Cotillo. Perez spent the first eight years of his career with the Guardians before joining the Pittsburgh Pirates ahead of the 2022 campaign.

I’m resurfacing it here not just because it’s David Villar’s birthday and David Villar figures to be an important player for the 2023 Giants, but because it’s one of the intentionally funniest Giants-related things I’ve seen in a long time. The premise of the 19-minute video is “a day in the life” of Villar before a night game at Oracle Park, but the execution unintentionally veers into buddy cop territory all thanks to the presence of the tallest baseball player I’ve ever seen, Mr. Sean Hjelle.

As someone rarely dared and who rarely accepts when dared, I totally get why the San Francisco Giants didn’t take me up on my dare back in September to spend $200 million on their 2023 payroll. But I still think they should have. Their roster would look even better.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be playing for the NFC title against the San Francisco 49ers this weekend. In honor of that game, I decided to compare the cities of Philadelphia and San Francisco to find out which is superior.

Jeff Kent came up empty in his 10th and final appearance on the writers’ ballot for entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame and isn’t happy about it. The 2000 National League MVP for the San Francisco Giants received 46.5 percent of the vote on Tuesday from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, well short of the 75 percent necessary to earn enshrinement. Kent, a five-time All-Star, took aim at the process, including people who don’t cast a ballot.

The Giants went from an 83-79 projection to, in Dan’s words, “an 85-90 win team,” and I think that’s just swell. He notes that their starting pitching depth is better than their NL West rivals, while not really being better anywhere else. But I think that’s the point.
