On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick answers questions from listeners about the state of the San Francsico Giants. Among the questions asked and answered are: What should the Giants' payroll be? As a big revenue team, at what point do we open our wallets to elite talent and compete dollar for dollar with the Yankees, Dodgers, Mets and Angels? I’m all for not wasting payroll. But I’m also for spending a lot of payroll wisely. With the Giants' 40 man roster now full with John Brebbia on board, who are the likely DFA/Release candidates in the event of a free agent signing? How can acquiring a left-handed starting pitcher not be the absolute top priority for Zaidi? Bellinger/Seager/Muncy 18 times with no LH SP? Who do you think is the best fit for the Giants? Tyler Anderson, James Paxton, Brett Anderson, or Gio Gonzalez? What kind of impact will Posey have on pitching in 2021? With the Cubs trying to shed salary, is there any particular reason you think that Craig Kimbrel’s name hasn’t come up in trade talks? He wasn’t effective in 2020 but has still put up solid strikeout rates in Chicago. If he were available would the Giants be interested?
