The offseason of the San Francisco Giants has been largely defined by some heartache in free agency.
First, San Francisco was said to be in play for Aaron Judge, with Jon Heyman even jumping the gun and saying that he was close to heading out west.
That did not come to pass, and the New York Yankees matched the offer for the reigning AL MVP.
The Giants also lost Carlos Rodon in free agency.
More recently, they had agreed to a deal with Carlos Correa, but after concerns arose over his physical, the New York Mets swooped in and took him.
Jon Morosi appeared on MLB Network on Tuesday and discussed where things stand with the Giants as of now.

Morosi brings up some good points.
On one hand, the moves the Giants have made are moves that could help the team in 2023.
On paper, the Giants do have a good team.
At the same time, as Morosi noted, it likely isn’t enough to compete with the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers.
There isn’t the same “superstar presence” in San Francisco.
If by some chance the situation with Correa gets worked out and he ends up back in San Francisco, then the Giants could have a better chance to compete with the Dodgers and Padres.
But Morosi didn’t dig into the Giants here, and did acknowledge that they have made some good moves in free agency.
