Brian Sabean is the General Manager of your San Francisco Giants. He was asked point blank whether Jason Bay or Matt Holliday would have any genuine interest in signing with his club. Read his point blank answer after the jump.



"I don't think that they would have genuine interest based on the field that they're going to be involved in. Why would they?"

When pressed on the issue, and asked if he thought the Yankees or the Red Sox are involved, he had this to say:

"You know the names. Either their incumbent clubs or maybe more so the teams that have the wherewithal to go out and get a player like that or maybe more than one player like that."

Once upon a time, Sabean had the wherewithal to go out and get a player like that. His name is Barry Zito.
