    I actually kind of like this. We have so much speed in our OF now

    Not that I had much hope anyway, but this means probably no Swisher.

    I like this deal. It's for $2M guaranteed. Great defense. Switch hitter. Able to spell all three OF positions. Most importantly, this sets up a platoon for LF:

    Andres Torres vs. LHP career: .258/.340/.743
    Gregor Blanco vs. RHP career: .262/.358/.698

    Certainly won't be a power hitting position for us, but will be an area of strength on defense with a good ability to get on base. Low risk, solid move.

    Waste of money. Should have been a minor league contract.

    Well, there's our platoon. I would've liked a bigger bat, but I guess it could be worse.

    andres torres is no doubt a giants legend for what he did in 2010, however it is frustrating to know that we are now out on Swisher because of Torres (who is really a 5th OF)...also as #24 said Torres could've been had by the giants likely for a minor league deal

    Blanco-Pagan-Torres is going to be some sweet late inning OF defense.

    Torres fared well last year against lefties but was terrible against them in 2010 & 2011...

    I'm sure he'll be used against righties since he's pretty bad against lefties. But yes, it's ****ing ******** how we can't bring in Swisher.
