The Return Of Angel Pagan, Contradictory Name Man

So, right after my “OH FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING PLEASE MAKE VICTORINO STAY FAR AWAY FROM THE GIANTS AS POSSIBLE” post, this happens.

And, y’know what, that’s not a nightmare. Or, a complete nightmare right now.*

After the B.J. Upton deal with the Braves (which is &75.25 million/5 years), the market average looked bleak. It seemed like there was going to be a lot of overpayment. And a lot of panda and giraffe hats needed to be sold by the unit.

So about $10m a year for Pagan. Sure, a two or three year deal might have been more lucrative to see, but with the way the market is right now, it was four years or nothing. The price tag on it, though, is what makes it a bit better. Two or three years was more attractive because of the lower price tag, especially after the Upton deal.

Now? This seems like a solid deal for four years of above-average outfielding with some upside.** And there’s nothing wrong with that right now.

So get those Shane Victorino and Scott Hairston rumors outta my face before this sourdough breadbowl becomes your shirt.

*Hindsight’s a pain.

**It’s also not AARON ROWAND Aaron Rowand.
