The San Francisco Giants entered 2013 with high hopes after winning their second World Series title in three years in 2012, but they stumbled to a 76-86 finish and a third-place tie in the National League West.
Despite having essentially the same roster as previous years, the Giants could never recapture the form that made them baseball's best team. As the offseason has progressed, San Francisco has been successful in retaining its veteran core with a series of re-signings.
Some of the new contracts have been met with heavy skepticism, as Giants general manager Brian Sabean paid the big bucks to re-sign players like Tim Lincecum and Hunter Pence.
But after a recent signing of outfielder Michael Morse to a free-agent deal, Sabean told reporters that the Giants are likely done agreeing to any more new Major League contracts heading into 2014, per John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle.
So, the heavy lifting for the Giants is finished, but that's not to say there are still moves to be made. Let's take a look at what San Francisco has accomplished so far this offseason, followed by some analysis of what needs to be done by the start of spring training.
