the giants-- who welcomed a new chapter in franchise history today.. with the introduction of president of baseball operations--farhan zaidi. the now-former dodgers exec met the media at 3rd-and-king this afternoon. the 41-year-old is thought of as one of the best executives and brightest minds in the sport... m-i-t graduate... went to cal for his doctorate in economics. his first job in baseball was working with billy beane in the a's front office. after 10-years, he built a reputation as a superb analytics guru, then went on to be the dodgers general manager. his philosophy on what it will take to get back into contention. "front office executives in other sports shared with me about his head coach and something he'd say to his players when he walked into the locker room after a win. the last thing he would say before he walked out was humble and victory and as a competitor and someone who's been involved in professional sports that really just sends chills down my spine and i'm gonna kinda paraphrase that and adopt that here and use the phrase humble in process."
we'll see who he decides to hire as general manager. one of the major talking points on how he'll approach the analytics and scouting discussion. an intriguing point that's been thrown around is the possibility of trading madison bumgarner... since he becomes a free agent next year and will court a lucrative contract. zaidi didnt' dive into talks on specific players, but was asked if he was told if anyone on the roster is considered untouchable. you don't really wanna throw the baby out with the bath water by kinda over indexing on how the injuries affected the teams performance. we wanna have maximum flexibility as an organization and make sure we're not missing any opportunities to get this thing moving in the right direction so there's certainly hasn't been any talks about restrictions or limitations in terms of doing what we think is right."
