San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has announced his plans to retire at the end of the upcoming 2019 season, leaving many to wonder what the future of the Giants is moving forward. Bruce Bochy has been a manager in Major League Baseball since 1995. He's become the longest tenured manager in the league, spending 13 seasons as the San Francisco Giants' manager.

However, on Monday it was announced he will be leaving his role as manager at the end of the 2019 season.

During his time as the Giants skipper, he recorded a 975-969 regular season record, and with his 12 years with the San Diego Padres, he leaves MLB with an incredible record of 1,926-144. Bochy has won four National League pennants and three World Series titles with the Giants.

Bruce Bochy not getting the credit he deserves

Despite his incredible performances, he has only won a single Manager of the Year award, and that was back in 1996 with the San Diego Padres.

When it matters most, Bochy's record is sure to earn him a spot in Cooperstown.

MLB's Jon Morosi said that Bruce Bochy is one of only 10 managers to win at least three World Series titles. Nine of them are in the Hall of Fame, meaning Bochy will definitely be enshrined.

Bochy has said that he wants to stay involved in the sport in some way and has already spoken with Giants CEO Larry Baer about different roles within the Giants organization, that he could take on.

The Giants have undergone some changes within the front office. The team fired general manager Bobby Evans last September. The team brought in former Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi to become president of baseball operations, and the front office is working on finding a new general manager, who will then be able to pick his own field manager.

Giants looking to rebuild the franchise with the new front office team

ESPN has said it doesn't appear that Bochy is being forced out or possibly fired if the Giants have a losing season.

The Giants ended up only winning 64 games in 2017 and 73 games in 2018, and now the Giants are not expected to be very good this season. The Giants are rumored to be considering trading away some of their veteran players like Madison Bumgarner and Evan Longoria. Zaidi is attempting to rebuild the Giants with some fresh new younger talent.

This type of shakeup would not sit well with a manager of Bochy's build, bringing in the conflict of old-school vs.

new-school in-game strategy. Today's retirement announcement is well-timed as he nears the end of his historic managerial run. After the 2019 season, the Giants can look to get back to their winning ways with the help of fresh faces in the Giants front-office.
