SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Giants CEO Larry Baer wants to add more World Series championships to the two his franchise has captured the past three seasons.

Why not build a baseball dynasty in the Bay Area?

Baer said Wednesday the front office is already hard at work beginning plans for the 2013 roster — and he is optimistic many familiar faces will stick around, including second baseman and NL championship series MVP Marco Scutaro.

"Nobody thinks we should be done," Baer said. "I think we want to get lots of people back, and he's one of them. ... My favorite sign was 'San Francisco, Happiest Place on Earth.' That's how we all feel about this. That's what the goal is."

NL West champion San Francisco completed a four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night at Comerica Park. The Giants and the city celebrated with an orange-and-black parade through downtown Wednesday — fitting it fell on Halloween.
