San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants’ decision to part ways with Gabe Kapler in the final stretch of the season has thrown their managerial position into the mix, making it another potential destination to watch. The Giants have historically operated with a payroll that ranks in the middle-to-upper echelons of MLB, a fact that could certainly pique Counsell’s interest.
The allure of managing a team with a substantially larger payroll—approximately $60 million greater than what the Brewers have traditionally worked with—might be a compelling factor for Counsell, especially considering the financial constraints or strategies employed by Milwaukee during his tenure. The prospect of additional resources and financial flexibility could factor significantly into his decision-making process as he evaluates his options in this managerial sweepstakes. It’s yet another intriguing subplot to follow in Counsell’s managerial saga.
