because bringing everyone back from the 2010 team worked so much in our favor

We won another world title the very next year, so it's not like it derailed us in any way.

Pagan for 5/$55 will derail us, guaranteed.

I really dont think any team is going to give Angel Pagan a 5 year deal. Just dont see it. If he does... I damn well hope it isnt with the Giants.

I'm totally on board with Scutaro for a reasonable two year deal. Pagan I don't think isn't worth much more than Victorino.

He isnt going to go anywhere I'm afraid. Pretty sure he will be playing 1B for the Nationals and LaRoache will be going elsewhere in FA. He would really be a nice fot for our team though.

Ehhhhh....we'll see.

Well.. as you say we shall see. The Giants problem is who would they trade? Crick or Stratton plus someone like Javy Lopez? (Washington would love to get Lopez I'm guessing). With the lack of great prospects in the Giants organization its just tough to make deals.

Stratton isnt going anywhere.

The problem with the Giants trying to add hitting, is they will always have to overpay for the results they will get. Most hitters are going to regress a bit coming over to AT&T, especially lefties. So it rarely makes sense to pay full market value, when we know we arent going to get as much out of them as they probably produced on their previous team.

Plus you have to factor in that players want more $ from a CA team due to the income taxes. Carlos Lee turned the Giants down in 2007 because he would make more money in Texas under the same terms. The Giants wouldve had to overpay just to match the Astros offer.

The Giants have to be very picky about which hitters they want to essentially overpay for. In the past they havent shown a very good knack for choosing those players.

So does not signing him and having absolutley nothing at 2B. Sure, he could regress but I dont see other options at this point.

Bond had a nice season in Fresno and Noonan's not bad either but I don't think they can produce like Scutaro.

Not even close. Scutaro is a must sign

Like I said last night, we will more than likely sign both Scutaro and Pagan. I don't think investing about $40 million in Pagan is huge risk to be honest. I'm probably in the minority here as I usually am, but I trust Sabean...he's earned it with 2 titles in the last three years.
