Francisco giants, finally sign another “Guard” today after trading $46.7 million.

Former Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford bid the team and its supporters an emotional farewell after agreeing to a one-year deal with the St. Louis Cardinals.

“Many thanks, @sfgiants! I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me throughout my career, from ownership and the front office who drafted me, called me up to the big leagues, and had the confidence to put me at second base for 13 seasons, to the clubhouse, training room, and travel staff who kept me on the field and made my life easier, to the players and coaches who have worked hard with me over the years and with whom I will always be friends, and to the best baseball fans who have stood by me through the good times and the bad,” Crawford posted on Instagram.

“I achieved things with you that I never even dreamed of. Jalynne, the kids, and I have lifelong memories and moments that will forever be engrained in our hearts. Thank you for everything . #ForeverGiant”

Opening pitchers and big-inning relievers have been a common sight on the mound for the Giants throughout the 2024 MLB season, making their pitching situation anything but ordinary.

Furthermore, some believe that San Francisco, which is typically seen as a free-agent destination for pitchers seeking to redeem themselves following setbacks or injuries, has damaged its reputation with the way it has handled its staff this season.

Because of the way the Giants handled the early struggles of Alex Wood, Sean Manaea, and Ross Stripling this season by putting them in bulk relief roles, some industry insiders believe the Giants have “damaged” their reputation on the free-agent pitching market, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic on Sunday.
