The Giants are still looking for a star

After trying in vain to attract Aaron Judge, Carlos Correa, Bryce Harper and most recently Shohei Ohtani, one wonders if San Francisco has not become an inhospitable host land?

The Giants even hired manager Bob Melvin, who spent the last two seasons in San Diego, perhaps thinking that Gabe Kapler was the source of their problems in attracting one or more impact players in order to help the team move to the next level.

Having retired at the conclusion of the 2021 season, wide receiver Buster Posey is the last athlete to wear a Giants uniform who can be considered a player who could single-handedly pull the team along.

Since the latter's departure, the team has been desperately looking for a savior to warm up the rather icy atmosphere that reigns around San Francisco Bay.

It's not for lack of trying, but the results of seduction campaigns remain a dead letter.

Still, the Giants aren't a bad team.

The signing of Shohei Ohtani with their California rivals hurts even more as the Giants will have to face the Japanese phenom several times over the next few seasons and if he returns to the mound as expected in 2025, the offense and new manager, Bob Melvin, will have to find solutions.

We all know that Oracle Park is not a hitter's paradise and that element certainly weighed in when the time came for Shohei Ohtani to make a choice. A left-handed hitter, he couldn't have imagined the rest of his career hitting two-base hits in a ballpark favoring pitchers.

Now a shareholder of the Giants, Buster Posey will not give up and will motivate his president of baseball operations, Farhan Zaidi, to find a solution before the opening of training camps. With the Ohtani file resolved, another Japanese is the target of the training, artilleryman Yoshinobu Yamamoto.

The Giants are not alone in targeting the pitcher, the two New York teams and the Los Angeles Dodgers (them again) are in the race.

Don't be surprised to see the team dig into the Matt Chapman case either. The latter evolved under the orders of Melvin in Oakland.

Same thing for pitcher Blake Snell who worked alongside the manager over the last two seasons in San Diego.

However, make no mistake because the Giants won't be finding their next Buster Posey in the coming weeks.
