Here’s Brian Sabean, interviewed in some Barry Zito puff piece, showing us his Captain Queeg side once again:
…. “We never asked him to be the savior coming over here, but that was the price of doing business,” Giants General Manager Brian Sabean said. “As much as people think we overpaid, there was another team, in the American League, that offered more.”
That team has never been identified….
Just like how the team knew that Freddie Sanchez would be worthless for the first $3 million dollars of his contract, and they used that knowledge to get a better deal from Uribe. Right.
On and on, Brian Sabean demonstrates his failings, his inability to accept responsibility for his terrible decisions, his unwillingness to learn from his mistakes and change with the times, his inflexibility when evaluating talent. And most importantly, he demonstrates how insecure he really is, how much he reads what people say and write about him and how he runs the Giants. Virtually everything he says is a response to something that is being said about him. And let’s not forget the muzzling of everyone who covers the Giants, from KNBR to Kruk and Kuip, nary a negative word is allowed to permeate the rarified air surrounding the team.
This is your San Francisco Giants General Manager.
UPDATE: Barry Zito continues to climb the charts, running his record to 5-0, pitching into the eighth and allowing but one run. Sergio Romo came in with the bases loaded and Hanley Ramirez at the plate, and gave up ZERO runs! Another series win for the surprising 16-10 Giants, who continue to defy Brian Sabean and Bruce Bochy’s efforts to derail the season.
