2013 San Francisco Giants Thread

Too much money for a guy like Pagan but the Giants really had few options. I am just glad they didnt spend 80 million on Bourn.

Another thought is should Pagan have a productive 2013 season, and Gary Brown is MLB ready by 2014, the Giants could trade Pagan for either a corner outfielder or starting pitcher at the 2013 winter meetings.

That is a possibility. Either way, one will be traded at some point.
Andrew Baggarly ‏@CSNBaggs Pagan breakdown: $5 million signing bonus and annual salaries of 7, 9, 9 and 10 million.
MLBTR - Heard a rumor today that the Giants were "bending over backwards" to re-sign Angel Pagan and Marco

About 1 year and $10 million more than I would have liked, but if he continues to perform like he did last year he'll be worth it. Sadly, he's not the model for consistency.

I agree. 4 years was absolutely a year too much but Upton's deal set the tone for what CFs were going to get. Also, there were too many teams in need of center fielders. It was the perfect storm for Pagan. Anyway, now the Giants have to get Marco signed and get another OF as well. My guess is the OF will come via a trade.

I like it. Now we can trade for Giancarlo and call it a day.

I'm worried about how much we're signing him for, but whatever, I defer to Sabes at this point.

Trade Gary Brown and pitching to the Marlins for Stanton and call it an off-season.

Pagan
Scutaro
Panda
Posey
Stanton
Belt
Pence
Crawford


Pence hitting 7th? worst idea ever lol
welcome back Pagan, we <3 you

Really? Where would you hit the guy in that lineup? In my opinion 7th would be the perfect spot.
Angel can now buy all the tacos he wants.

and a 2012 world series ring.



Now it's time to trade Gary Brown for a corner outfield spot. Who's available?

The bottom line is the Giants will get another season to evaluate Gary Brown whether or not they feel he can cut it as a starter. Next winter there will teams who desperately will want an experienced lead off hitter. These teams more than likely would be willing to spare a corner outfielder or starting pitcher under contract to get that player. Should Pagan have a decent season next year, 3 years at 30M won't looks as bad compared to what other Free Agents will demand next year. With that said I'm glad Pagan is back to help us next year given that Gary Brown needs at least another full season in the minors.

Exactly what I was thinking. Frisco likes to comment on stuff but never explain his reasoning.
