Giants Exercise 2012 Options For Sabean, Bochy

The Giants won the 2010 World Series under GM Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy, so they aren't about to let them go. The team announced today that it exercised its 2012 options for Sabean and Bochy.

“Brian and Bruce’s proven leadership and strategic moves throughout the course of their baseball careers, culminating in last year’s World Series Championship, distinguishes them as two of the best minds in all of baseball," managing general partner and CEO Bill Neukom said in a statement.

Sabean is the longest-tenured GM in baseball and is in the midst of the longest run by a GM in Giants history. He has led the Giants to five postseason appearances, two NL pennants and a World Championship in 14 seasons.

Bochy, the winningest manager in Padres history, is fourth among active big league managers with 1274 wins and is 33rd on the all-time list. He has led the Giants to a 323-325 record in four seasons in San Francisco.
