Giants give Bochy, Sabean three-year extensions

The SportsXchange

Winning two World Series in a three-year span is a good way to ensure job security.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean reaped the rewards of their success Thursday when the team announced three-year contract extensions for both men. Both contracts will now run through 2016.

NBCBayArea.com reported that the team also holds options on both contracts for 2017.

Bochy, 57, took over the Giants in 2007 after a 12-year run as the San Diego Padres' manager. He led San Diego to the 1998 World Series.

With San Francisco, Bochy has a 503-469 record. Overall, he's got a 951-975 mark.

Bochy played nine years as a major league catcher for the Houston Astros, New York Padres and San Diego.

Sabean, baseball's longest-tenured GM, took over the job in 1996. The Giants made the World Series in 2002 before winning it in 2010 and 2012.
