I’m encouraged by Farhan Zaidi’s first roster moves as new Giants GM. Cutting loose Hunter Strickland was long overdue in my mind. I would’ve cut him loose as soon as he recovered from that idiotic clubhouse door punch! Too many stupid incidents from him for me.
Cutting Gorkys Hernandez was justified too. Yes, his homers shot up last season and he had a great May. But, he struck out too often for a .230 hitter with an OPS of .676. His defense was always overrated in my opinion.
GM Zaidi is off to a good start. Let’s hope there’s more dramatic moves coming soon!
