Be still my heart. Of course, this is exactly what I love to see....RESULTS!!! From my blog post of two days ago to the news of the day.
from The Slav's Blog:
BTWII, I keep hearing that the Giants may need to add a guy like Ryan Vogelsong. Last time I checked, Ryan Vogelsong was still available. SIGN VOGIE!!! You cheap bastards!!!
from Hardball Talk:
Ryan Vogelsong “shifts course” on Astros, now “in serious discussions” with the Giants | HardballTalk:
Free agent starter Ryan Vogelsong was said to be working toward an agreement with the Astros and even traveled to Houston on Monday to meet with team officials. But it appears those negotiations have suddenly collapsed. From the Twitter account of FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal …'via Blog this'
It just makes more sense from both sides that Vogie ends up in SF than Houston. For the Giants, if you need a "Vogelsong-like" pitcher to fill out the staff, and Vogelsong is available, you don't give the fans Jason Marquis. From Vogie's side, I'm not sure he has enough mileage in him to see the results of the Astros rebuilding effort. Why not Pittsburgh and close that career circle instead?
