Teams postpone big, introductory press conferences — events that have been on the schedule for a week — the morning of all the time, right?


No, of course, they don’t.

That’s what makes the Giants postponing Carlos Correa’s introductory press conference Tuesday so bizarre. That’s why it’s impossible not to think the worst about the situation.

Yes, the Giants’ offseason from hell is back on, folks.

Maybe it will be for a few hours. Maybe this is the permanent state. Either way, what happened Tuesday was a really bad look amid an offseason full of them — an offseason that was supposed to be saved by the signing of the Puerto Rican star shortstop.

Here are the facts: Correa has not signed with the Giants. He has an agreement to sign with the Giants, but the pen has not hit paper on that 13-year, $350 million contract.

That was supposed to happen Tuesday. It didn’t.

As such, Correa might never be signed by the Giants.

And if he is signed, the Giants better have an outstanding excuse as to why they couldn’t manage to stage a press conference with him on Tuesday, because the postponement is both suspicious and unbecoming.
