Grade the Giants' offseason

How did the Giants do this offseason? Will their parents let them use the car this weekend? I'll admit to coming around to Johnny Cueto's enormous contract. It's just as expensive as Barry Zito's deal and for almost as long, but then I think about just how good Cueto has been. What if he's as good as he was when he finished second in the Cy Young voting? What if he's that good for three years? In a void without baseball, that seems almost plausible. I'll admit to coming around to Jeff Samardzija's enormous contract. Sure, he was actively bad last year, but think about the White Sox defense!...
