SI gives the Giants a D for off-season

Well, the team shouldn't be too over-confident with reports like this. 

Along with the Mets and Rox, the Giants got a D from Sports Illustrated for their offseason moves.Here's the verbiage -- 

Preliminary Grade (Feb. 4): D
Final Grade: D
Key moves since preliminary grade: Signed LHP Clay Rapada to a minor league deal

Pablo Sandoval and Michael Morse are gone, Casey McGehee and Nori Aoki are here, and Jake Peavy, Ryan Vogelsong and Sergio Romo were retained. The Giants avoid the minus here because Morse didn't fit on an NL team with a good first baseman, and Sandoval is likely to prove a poor investment. San Francisco did technically replace both, and coming off the team's third championship in five years, there's only so much criticism that will stick to this organization. —Cliff Corcoran
