Sabean: Sanchez probably at full health, not full strength
Sabean talks about how Cain's signing could affect Lincecum down the road, and provides an update on Freddy Sanchez.
You can exhale he got this one done you celebrate tomorrow you look at Bobby evidence they what is next. Well we've we've -- a reverse some of the things that that would like to do the problem is the season -- -- coming in. You know we control a lot of these players like we do Lincecum -- -- for the next two years and you know we will take them through a step back and visit with the ownership. Everything we try to do it is is a snapshot of what we into real time of the -- team but also as we go -- -- there. Are homegrown players and more so with the team looks like on Paper including budget was in the future. Now. Pitching on Lincecum one more time because I think fans are still gonna sweat a little bit they know they got him for two years. But -- got a long term deal for McCain how does -- affect the way you approached him. But that's up to you know both sides and how we interacts. You know from this point four. I would tell that to be in the conversation at this point again that's -- season's pending but there're some windows of opportunity. As things went present themselves will be open -- and I'm sure they they were we were discussing a long term contract catch him in the long term contract offered to them. And we chose the two year route to -- relate to his liking and there are you know ability to pay that kind of money in this two year when the time right -- turner touched the ball club according to Bruce Sochi. But twelve pitchers on this staff why he's decided that with twelve pitchers to start the year that we we have a tough schedule it's not too easy in any. Point he has to start over and Arizona or Colorado and you know one over Texas starter is either and that's really a big. A concern of every manager you start the season so we know them all the -- -- in back of the middle among the actual only skipped book. The fassero wants that we back. With -- us and the you know I think that's a comforting. I think the no. That you do have enough reinforcement in the bullpen. To to try to go in winning each inning to win each game and that all the songs is on his way back. How much more difficult is that going to be do. Decide on your final position players in -- ball pitchers that is gonna. Shortly -- have on the bench for the playoffs likely have to realize once you know -- -- song comes back he would be taken that's the place of the twelfth pitcher anyway. A lot of what you try to do is based on flexibility who has options. You know who has a guaranteed contract. We know six -- is coming back at some point and thus. When he does come back yet to be able to move that person off the roster probably to the minor leagues so. We'll try to get as much depth and flexibility in that music goes down the wire which the next 72000 right. Argument you Freddy Sanchez and Oprah's -- -- just met with the media he mentioned him as well he said his progress is coming along could you define -- coming along means. For Freddy Sanchez's he tries to prepare so to get back to AT&T park. Thank goodness he's he's got to play in some games on an extended spring and then that's the most important hurdle. -- Held back in that regard when he tweaked his back in the in the shoulder flared up as the result of the pack not being in rights that we really have this baby -- with them. But this this is the type of thing that could come fast even though it's a major injury to the -- shoulder. I think that he's probably at full. Health but not necessarily at full strength soreness because he has to play the innings. He has to be able to you know go to was right is to turn a double play is to stay on the field for nine innings in consecutive days -- -- trying to fill those boxes we have. You know 28 game rehab that you're allowed to with this type of book. Rehab assignment so we'll probably use all the time that serves so I'll convince do you Emanuel vs the guy for the job until -- -- just as well that's on this in my decision -- my job was to get the minute in many choices this weekend and then and then he. Knows that with the coaching staff and it's up to Bruce and he'd stayed put the best line about there I know that he likes verses progress and how he's. You know improved as a player and I know that he likes the acquisition material especially -- he can do against left handed pitcher. We have an old saying they're all gonna play in that -- -- it really just have that creative again as much depth as possible. You're shortstop Randy Crawford swing -- the bat very well spring training at the -- -- cactus league production. Did he work on something different the offseason that he noticed something different about him and are you convinced that this is -- real hitter that he can be. Well we hope so it we know it's not going to be easy hit -- and any anybody's line of museum here. But he really took some lessons they learn at the end of the year into the Arizona Fall League in the end. Made some adjustments where he's he's put a lot of balls in play. Including having quality at bats are more consistent basis we didn't see that in the past people you know I think forget that. -- this kid didn't belong in the big leagues last year we were just at a point where he was the best choice at the time. And that he's the type of guy that's gonna grown from -- our eyes and we would like to think we've shown with a bad spring training. There's a lot Wilkens look and see for him in the -- -- -- -- in the because the regular season from the jump back to the starting staff for the pitchers Barry Zito he came into camp when he. At a new motion. But he scrapped and went to the old motion. Is this a case of a guy just over think -- himself but could be and that's what you know racing -- a great -- and then view it would get a willing pupil but you still have to be consistent in delivery. Which because arm action and control he's gonna have to they have the confidence to put something in play that he can. You know hang its -- on -- throw strikes within attacked the strike zone and that that's what -- search -- -- and that's that's the end game. I giants' biggest rivals the Los Angeles Dodgers and they now have new ownership. Does that change the way you approach running your club you know that they spent an awful lot of money on that club and they didn't strategist at all and as a Bobble. They're gonna work with it so does that change what you look at our you look at the future for the Giants organization. Effect that they think it's kind of humorous that think that you know or them. To portray themselves in the coming -- and taken over -- caller you know conquering every you know. Facet of the game right away you know I am sure that -- them very committed after the sale price. But again it comes down to a place in time who's in the free agent market what the needs are. And there are 29 other clubs in baseball that you know -- players good players on the roster and you know to be -- -- and and the players that are on social than not gonna get all. Right Bryan that thanks for joining us here is the first of our all season long we're talking -- every Tuesday. That's something you OK with that president this is okay I'm -- -- was at -- businesslike at times are cactus league right here with five women with these important season for Bryant Zabian says so we are.
