The San Francisco Giants say they are doing everything they can to turn around their 64-98 2017 season. Finishing 40 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers, that won’t be an easy task.
Before that, the Giants traded away beleaguered starting pitcher Matt Moore to the Texas Rangers for two minor league pitchers in a salary dump. Presumably, the Giants would use that money to sign a big free agent outfield bat such as Jay Bruce.
Bruce is closely linked with the Giants, and his agent said on KNBR radio his top two choices are San Francisco and Houston.

With so many rumors swirling around the Giants, Around the Foghorn is here to sort it out for you.
Larry Krueger is a sports talk host on the Gary and Larry Show on KNBR radio in San Francisco. He sat down with ATF’s Vince Cestone to share his thoughts on what the Giants should do to get better in 2018.
Larry also shares his thoughts on the Hot Stove and why it’s been more like a cold stove. Krueger tells Around The Foghorn that the Giants’ best chance to get better in 2018 is through free agency and adding “quality depth” to the roster.

With 35 days until pitchers and catchers report, the Hot Stove has to heat up soon. This is the most unpredictable offseason in recent history, and you better buckle up. Sooner or later something will give and deals will start to get signed. It will be a landslide. But for now, we get to sit and wait.
