213 Miles From Shea:
Aaron Rowand was released by the Giants and is looking for a job right now. If he could be signed for a very cheap price, he could provide an interesting solution to our OF problems.
Pagan right now is the question mark in the outfield. A possibly solution, if the market is right, would be to go through the arbitration process with Pagan and trade him for 5 million dollars worth of prospects (assuming that will be the price of Pagan's contract) and then bring in Rowand on a cheap contract.
Roward had one gigantic year in Philly, and several solid ones (similar to his time in Chicago).

If anything, he is the type of player that Terry Collins likes (putting his body in every play) and he could be a good influence on Duda and Murphy.

According to Chris Haft, the Giants might be “eyeing” free agent outfielder Ryan Ludwick:
The Giants were believed to have scheduled a meeting Monday with Ludwick’s agent, Dan Horwits. Ludwick earned $6.775 million last season but might be more affordable than that this winter, even on the open market.
The Giants have sent outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Mets in exchange for outfielder Angel Pagan.
Up today, as we continue to take a look back at 2011, is the starting pitchers. This was the strength of the team and if the Giants are going to contend next season it will need to be again.
The ERA is shiny and looks nice but there are some things that are not...
Last night I couldn’t go to bed after a long day because for the first time since Alderson became GM it seemed as though a plan of sorts was being unveiled.
Before anybody assumes anything, I don’t think anything that happened last night was phenomenal, I just think it was a sign of moving on, and an actual plan for 2012.
The biggest move was the trade of Angel Pagan for Andres...
