Not sure I agree. If they let Sandoval go, Posey wouldn't have to be open to playing "some" third base, as the Giants would not have a third baseman. I am not sure Sabean wants to rely on a plan that shifts his very valuable catcher to third base and bring in Susac to replace him. At least not next year. That's why I think he only offered 3 years to begin with.
Honestly if Sandoval only wants 5 years, I do not think it's crazy to go that long with him. By then you should know where Posey is going to have to be to take care of him, if his knees are holding up from catching, etc.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Giants might not have room for Pablo Sandoval
