This is apparently their reward for winning 88 games this season, which was unexpected success from a team with arguably the worst offense in baseball. Of course, Sabean and Bochy are largely responsible for how awful the offense is, which has led to countless entertaining rants from Grant at McCovey Chronicles. To wit:
I’ve watched Brian Sabean build an offense after he was spotted the greatest hitter of the last 50 years, and I’ve watched him build an offense without that player. I’m almost convinced that Sabean uses batting average, RBI, and general scouting reports as his primary player evaluation tools. I’m almost convinced that Bochy uses his eyes and his gut feelings. And I’m certainly convinced that the Giants’ offense needs a hell of a lot more.

hate mirth of Giants fans, head over to McCovery Chronicles' thread about it.
