Hey, maybe the Guardians' offseason isn’t perfect, but it’s going better than the Giants. First, there was the “Arson Judge” debacle, where Jon Heyman incorrectly reported that the slugging outfielder was headed to San Francisco. Then, just yesterday, the Giants noticed something in Carlos Correa's medicals that negated a 13-year, $350 million deal he agreed to. He jumped to the Mets instead 12-year, $315 million deal yesterday.

If the Giants actually found something worrying, maybe they’ll come out looking alright in this in the long term. In the short term, however, it’s been a brutal offseason for a team that won 100 games just a year ago.
