What Is Madison Bumgarner Worth in Upcoming Giants Megadeal?

There's what Madison Bumgarner is actually making, what he's actually worth and how much he might make in his next contract.

Spoiler alert: These three things are all very different.

Giants Spring Training 2017 Preview: Predictions, Players to Watch and More

For the first time since the waning days of the George W. Bush administration, the San Francisco Giants didn't win the World Series in an even year.

Now, as we prepare to inaugurate President Donald J. Trump, San Francisco will look to usher in an era of odd-year dominance. 

First, they've got spring training issues to sort out, including position battles in left field, at third base and the back end of the rotation, where a former franchise cornerstone is trying to resuscitate his career.

Willie McCovey's Tax Evasion Charges Pardoned by President Obama

President Barack Obama pardoned baseball Hall of Famer and San Francisco Giants great Willie McCovey on Tuesday of tax evasion. 

According to the Guardian's Ben Jacobs, McCovey was sentenced to two years of probation and fined $5,000 in 1996 after he falsified federal income tax returns.

Predicting San Francisco Giants Depth Charts a Month Ahead of Spring Training

After finally running out of even-year magic in 2016, the San Francisco Giants don't have many questions to answer before they try to conjure some odd-year magic in 2017.

After filling their closer need by signing Mark Melancon, the Giants should only have a couple roster spots up for grabs when they arrive for spring training next month. That makes it easy to spell out their depth charts on paper, which is what we aim to do.

San Francisco Giants' Top Free-Agent, Trade Targets Post-New Year

Jimmy Rollins to Giants: Latest Contract Details, Comments, Reaction

Jimmy Rollins isn't ready to call it a career just yet. The veteran shortstop agreed to a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants on Monday, where he'll attempt to make the 25-man roster out of spring training.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported the news.

Mark Melancon Puts Giants Back on Level for NL West Dominance

The San Francisco Giants' run of even-year championships finally ended in 2016 in large part because their bullpen was cursed. Or to put it slightly more bluntly, just not very good.

All they had to do to solve this was sign the most expensive relief pitcher in Major League Baseball history.

Mark Melancon to Giants: Latest Contract Details, Comments, Reaction

Mark Melancon spent the second half of the 2016 season with the Washington Nationals, but the 31-year-old closer is moving on from the reigning National League East champions after reportedly signing with the San Francisco Giants on Monday. 

J.D. Martinez Would Be Ideal Fit for Power-Starved Giants

Before the San Francisco Giants' run of even-year championships was killed by their bullpen at the end of 2016, it was wounded by their lack of power.

Their leading home run hitter was Brandon Belt, who cranked just 17 homers. 17. The bullpen shouldn't be forgotten, but this is also a problem that needs fixing this winter.

It seems the Giants have just the guy in mind.

Giants Should Sign 2 of Chapman, Jansen and Melancon to Chase 2017 Title

The San Francisco Giants need to bolster their bullpen.

The Giants know it. Every other team knows it. Your second cousin who's wrapped up in the election and doesn't really follow baseball knows it.
