Giants Rumors: Sabean, Bochy, Bradley, Kikuchi

A few notes on the Giants from Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News

  • As Luke mentioned last night, Baggarly expects manager Bruce Bochy and GM Brian Sabean to sign new contracts shortly.
  • Baggarly asked a Giants executive with veto power whether he'd approve an Aaron Rowand for Milton Bradley trade.  The exec said yes, which makes sense with Bradley owed $21MM and Rowand owed $36MM.  Nonetheless Baggarly does not expect the Giants to get involved on Bradley due to potential team chemistry issues.
  • Giants scouting director John Barr recently returned from Japan, where he observed hard-throwing high school southpaw Yusei Kikuchi.  Baggarly expects the Giants to "make a legitimate run" at Kikuchi if he chooses MLB.  The Giants are at least one of ten teams in on the pitcher.
