How excited you got by the Pagan re-signing just so you could quickly call Brown expendable only confirmed you hate him. Might as well admit it.
I don't know how the Giants feel about him.
I know they are overpaying for Pagan instead of putting a cheap 'place-holder' until Brown arrives, as a lot of people on here suggested. Obviously, that doesn't seem like it's going to happen over the next two years. But who knows?
Until he proves he can play at a high level in AA/AAA consistently I'm not ready anticipate him making the MLB Roster.
Does that mean I hate him? No. I don't know this guy personally - Why in the world would I hate him?
Does that mean I want him to do bad? No, wtf?
Does that make him expendable? I think thats a very fair question... If the Giants FO is convinced he is not going to be much of player or maybe as great as they thought he was when Brown was drafted... I'd say you try and maximize his value and trade him for some decent value before he is a 26 Year Old 'Prospect'.
