Two blog posts for the price of one.
Andres Torres is back. I’m surprisingly non-conflicted about this.
I’ll be honest, considering how popular he was with a few female friends of mine, I wasn’t all THAT upset to see him leave in the Angel Pagan trade last season. I mean, I liked him well enough, that he was one of those scrappy players who jumped up for the Giants, and...

Torres was with the Giants for two years before being traded for Angel Pagan, but now he...
