MLBTR Breaks It Down…

November 14, 2012

Interesting analysis of the Giants’ offseason over at MLBTR (serving daily shots of Methadone to detoxing baseball junkies). Maybe the most intriguing ‘graph:

Brian Wilson, however, should probably be non-tendered given his projected salary of $8.5MM — that’s too much for a reliever coming off of Tommy John surgery. Clay Hensley could also be non-tendered at the end of November.

Clay Hensley! Who saw that coming?

Seriously, it’s a valid point re: Wilson. $8.5 mil is a loooooot to pay for a guy recovering from a second Tommy John, particularly when you’ve got a pretty damn solid ‘pen without him. Then again, from a PR standpoint, letting Wilson take his beard and talents elsewhere could be disastrous. My hope is they work out a smaller, incentive-laden deal. I’m thinking with my heart; we’ll see if the Giants do the same.
