According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants have spoken with Scott Boras about Manny Ramirez and Mark Teixeira, but it’s unknown if they’ve made them any offers.
Giants director of player personnel Bobby Evans told Schulman “we’re willing to go after the best talent we can.”
The Giants haven’t offered Rafael Furcal a contract, but Paul Kinzer, Furcal’s agent, said that the Giants and Furcal have “serious interest” in each other. Schulman mentions Oakland as possible competition for the Giants, and the Royals could be among the many teams interested in the shortstop.
Schulman believes Furcal is looking for at least a four-year deal worth $10MM a year.
The Giants have also spoken with C.C. Sabathia’s representatives.
