All indications are that reliever Guillermo Mota will not be pursued by the San Francisco Giants to return to their bullpen, reports Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com. Fan favorite (or at least was) Brian Wilson has been told by surgeon James Andrews that he will be cleared for Spring Training and ready by Opening Day, says Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter). Let’s just hope he doesn’t try to rush himself back and ends up right back on the DL.There is a good hand full of teams that are interested in Wilson, but no figures have really been thrown out as of yet. Giants VP Bobby Evans says he hasn’t talked to Wilson’s representatives at the Winter Meetings, but there is an understanding to stay in touch, says Andrew Baggarly (via Twitter).I still would like to see Wilson back in a Giants uniform. Let’s hope Wilson has a change of heart, and takes the Giants up on their offer to return to Orange & Black.The Giants were showing interest in pitcher Jason Grilli, but Ken Rosenthal...

A Toast To Signing Pagan

That almost might be the most important part of signing Angel Pagan: Not getting Shane Victorino. This is not to minimize Pagan.  Pagan was an important part of the championship team, and him getting hot at the right time late in the season helped get to the playoffs, almost as much as Buster Posey’s 2nd half.  His leadoff home run in Game 4 of the NLDS is a forgotten and important...

Jason Grilli Could Sign With Someone Today

You could either file that headline under “Pointing Out the Obvious Possibilities” or “Most Vague News Ever”. In this case it’s more of the latter. Jason Grilli tweeted the following early this morning. Early trip to Nashville. Long journey to get to this point but this is what I worked for. Will be a full day. #pumped — Jason Grilli (@GrillCheese49) December 5, 2012...

Grilli to Decide Between Four Teams Today; Pirates in the Mix

Peter Gammons has the latest on the Jason Grilli watch.

It would be surprising if any team went to three years, considering...

First Pitch: Joel Hanrahan’s Future With the Pirates

If Jason Grilli is signed, will Joel Hanrahan get traded? The MLB Winter Meetings wrapped up today with a nice summary of how the entire meetings went. The Pirates didn’t take anyone in the Rule 5 draft, sent Kyle Kaminska to the Red Sox to complete the Zach Stewart trade, and one of the biggest stories in baseball was whether Jason Grilli had signed. I like Jason Grilli. I think...

Baseball’s winter meetings were held this week in Nashville. That usually means a week full of rumors, Twitter blowing up every hour or so with a big new trade or signing, and general chaos. For the Pirates, that was not the case this year. Neal Huntington admitted that signing Russell Martin was going to be the Bucs’ “big move” of the offseason, which is disappointing but...
