The Giants announced that they have extended the contracts of general manager Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy through the 2016 season.
It’s unclear what the financial terms are, but expect them to be “in the upper strata.”
Yep, that’s what winning two World Series in three seasons will get you.
Sabean is in his 17th season as the general manager in San Francisco and has a .537 winning percentage. Bochy has compiled a 503-469 record (with a 20-9 postseason record) in his six seasons as the Giants’ skipper.
The announcement came shortly before the first game of the club’s Bay Bridge exhibition series against the A’s.
From SF Gate:
“The glory days of this franchise are now,” Giants President Larry Baer said in announcing the extensions, “and I think it’s important to acknowledge that and acknowledge the people who got us there.”
“Bruce is a tough SOB, even if he doesn’t come off that way,” Sabean said. “If you work with him every day, you see how he empowers the players.”
“I’m very happy to continue this journey,” Bochy said. “It’s been an amazing ride these past few years.”
