With the hire of Farhan Zaidi as President of Baseball Operations, the Giants may be finally heading towards a rebuild. It’ll be interesting what Zaidi does in order to shed some of the awful contracts this team possesses.
Current State: Rebuilding (Finally!)
Giants Hire Farhan Zaidi as Pres. of Baseball Ops
The Giants have hired Farhan Zaidi to be their President of Baseball Operations. Zaire, 42, served as the rival Dodgers general manager since 2014. Before that, he was the assistant general manager for the A’s, starting in 2011. Zaidi has been labeled as one of baseball’s brighter young minds, who is analytically driven yet has a history with scouting. He is a superstar executive, and he’s the type of candidate that the Giants were dreaming of hiring. As soon as he became available, this became an easy decision. Zaire helped the Dodgers get out of salary cap troubles when he took over, making creative trades to free salary. He’ll have to the same for the Giants, who are spending a large amount of money on underperforming veterans. If there’s anything who can do so and “save” the Giants, who seem heading towards a gloom future, it’s Zaidi. Zaidi will likely cut salary and boost San Francisco’s farm system, two things the previous regime refused to do. This new direction for the Giants is the right one, and they picked the perfect person in Zaidi. This is a great start for San Francisco, they are no longer the World Series contender they were earlier this decade.
