Sabean thinks Giants fans are stupid

Here's another reason to add to the long list of reasons why Brian Sabean should be sent packing -- he's just sent an insulting letter to season ticket holders asking them to renew and telling them that the team will be better because it's now focused on pitching and defense. The letter is posted at McCovey Chronicles.

Why would I say that this is insulting? Because a normal logical person would conclude that the reason for focusing on pitching and defense stems from trying to correct the shortcomings of the 2007 Giants -- that they went 71-91 because they were lacking in those areas. So I checked to see how the 2007 Giants fared and it turns out that the team had sixth lowest number of runs allowed in MLB last year at 720; they were 10th lowest in earned runs at 673.

Unfortunately, the Giants also had the second-lowest number of runs scored at 683 (only the Nats were lower). Sabean's response was to re-sign Omar Vizquel and replace Barry Bonds with Aaron Rowand. The bottom line is that the club was and is fundamentally flawed offensively. To pretend that it's going win more games than it did last year without an improved offense is nonsensical, even if Sabean says he might make some moves before March 31. We can hope it's for someone like Brad Wilkerson, who can actually hit, but it will probably be for an over-rated, over-the-hill guy like Tony Clark, Mark Sweeney or Steve Finley.

In addition to lying about where the club needs to improve, Sabean could not be bothered to get a decent proofreader for the letter -- Not only are we taking a new tact on the field, but we also made three major new additions to the front office to help supplement our baseball operations staff.

HEY STUPID -- THE WORD IS "TACK" BUT I GUESS IT'S TOO MUCH TO EXPECT FOR ANYONE AS DUMB AS YOU TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
