The cohesion between Bochy and Sabean has been apparent all along. With two World Series rings in three seasons and expiring contracts heading into the 2013 season, the extensions for Bochy and Sabean were inevitable. On Thursday, Sabean proudly displayed his hardware from the 2010 World Series triumph, the first in San Francisco's history of baseball. Bochy blended the talent together perfectly, beating the Texas Rangers in five games that fall. Ten days before the Giants receive their 2012 hardware at AT&T Park, the Giants committed to two of the biggest reasons behind the organization's ascent to the top of the game. "It's important to acknowledge that and pay tribute to the people who have done it from the general manager's office and the manager's office to get us to where we are now. It's hard to measure when you take the entire longevity of the franchise, 131 years you probably haven't had a better stretch, no matter how you want to measure it, the last three or four years."
