Giants pick up options on Bruce Bochy, Brian Sabean

Ezra Shaw

As expected, the Giants exercised options on manager Bruce Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean.

In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone, the San Francisco Giants officially exercised the 2014 contract options for manager Bruce Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean.

Giants CEO Larry Baer announced the moves on Tuesday and said the sides would discuss contract extensions for the 2015 season and beyond during the upcoming year. Baer also praised the relationship between Sabean and Bochy and said their working relationship was a major reason for the Giants' recent success.

Sabean is beginning his 17th season as general manager of the Giants. He's currently the longest-tenured general manager in MLB. He was also named Baseball America's Executive of the Year on Tuesday. Bochy praised Sabean, calling him the best general manager in baseball.

Bochy's extension comes as no surprise as he guided the Giants to their second World Series title in three years. Bochy just finished his sixth season with the Giants. San Francisco had a winning record in four of his six seasons. Despite beginning his 19th season as a manager, Bochy said he would like to continue to manage for a long time.
