Report: Giants meet with Harper for 2nd time

Report: Giants meet with Harper for 2nd time The San Francisco Giants aren't giving up their pursuit of Bryce Harper just yet. On Tuesday, Giants CEO Larry Baer and president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi met with Harper in Las Vegas for the second time in a matter of weeks, sources told Kerry Crowley of the Mercury News. Zaidi confirmed there was "mutual interest" between the Giants and Harper after their initial meeting in early February. The Giants reportedly planned to offer Harper a lucrative short-term deal, but the free-agent slugger is apparently seeking a long-term commitment and has given no indication he's willing to change that demand, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan on Monday.

Gettleman was a long-time disciple of former Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi and served as Jerry Reese’ s pro personnel director before building a Super Bowl contender in Carolina. His ties to the organization made him a heavy favorite—but perhaps also made him a tainted candidate for a fan

New York Giants fans are livid with GM Dave Gettleman for trading away Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday, and they’ve made it known in several ways. Some made it clear by hacking the GM’s Wikipedia page and stuffing it full of negative comments.

Larry Brown Sports writer Gordon Dixon noticed that Gettleman’s Wikipedia page had been hacked and edited after the trade. The edits called Gettleman a “clown” and the “most hated man in New York” following the trade.

In his employment section, rather than listing him as GM of the New York Giants, the column was edited to say “Ruined the New York Giants”. It also listed 3/12/2019 as Gettleman’s date of death.

Who is Dave Gettleman ? Gettleman spent 15 years with the Giants as the team’ s director of pro personnel and senior pro personnel analyst. New Giants GM Dave Gettleman is expected to keep interim GM Kevin Abrams on board in his previous position, as assistant GM , according to sources.

Three weeks after the Browns hired John Dorsey, the Giants have hired Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman . Gettleman has Giants history so I’m not expecting particularly drastic changes, but a new GM offers I doubt it happens, but it’ s at least on the radar for non- Giants fans .

That gives you an idea of the magnitude of Gettleman’s move.

Let’s recap what Gettleman’s done: bring back a washed up quarterback for the second year in a row, draft a running back with the No. 2 overall pick instead of a QB, let Landon Collins go, and trade their best player. If you’re wondering what exactly his plan is, we are too.

Giants fans better hope his vision includes this man.

Gettleman: Narrative that Manning can't play is 'a crock'.
Dave Gettleman is once again standing behind his veteran quarterback. During a conference call Monday, the New York Giants general manager confirmed Eli Manning will receive his $5-million roster bonus for the upcoming campaign, according to USA Today's Art Stapleton. "On offense, you gotta have a QB run out there," Gettleman said, according to NFL Network's Kim Jones. " This narrative that Eli is overpaid and can't play is a crock. It really is." Gettleman added that keeping Manning on the Giants' 2019 roster "really wasn't a hard decision to make," according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.
