It has been long speculated that San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean would be signed to long-term deals, and it may come to fruition very shortly.

ESPN’s Buster Olney told 95.7 The Game that contract extensions for Bochy and Sabean are expected to be signed in the next two days.

Bochy has won two of the past three World Series, and is entering his seventh season with the Giants. Sabean is the longest tenured GM in the majors, entering his 17th season at the helm of the club.

The duo is signed through 2014 after the Giants picked up their options last year.
