San Francisco Giants and Angel Pagan Agree on 1 Year Deal

PaganAccording to ESPN, the San Francisco Giants and outfielder Angel Pagan agreed to a $4.85 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration.

Pagan was acquired during last month's winter meetings from the New York Mets for outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez.

The 30-year-old Pagan, who replaced mentor Carlos Beltran in center field while with New York, is a switch-hitter with speed. He batted .262 with seven home runs and 56 RBIs last season, down from .290 with 11 homers and 69 RBIs in 2010. Beltran moved to right field for the Mets in spring training before he was traded to the Giants in late July. After an injury-plagued stint in the Bay Area that saw the 2010 World Series champions miss the playoffs, Beltran departed to the St. Louis Cardinals on a two-year contract.

Pagan's deal includes $150,000 in performance bonuses: $50,000 each for 550, 600 and 650 plate appearances.

Willie Harris Wants to Defeat Beltran in Playoffs

After Carlos Beltran's departure to join his new team, the San Francisco Giants, Willie Harris tried to rally the troops before last nights game. He said to anyone in earshot while in the training room,
"Lets make the playoffs and let's beat Carlos Beltran in the playoffs."
When asked about his comments Harris told the NY Post,
"I mean, how cool would that be?" Harris said after the Mets beat the Reds 8-2 at Great American Ball Park. "We trade our best hitter and then we send him home in the playoffs."
The Mets are one win closer to Harris' request after defeating the Reds with the help of Mike Pelfrey who seemed to have toned down his criticism of the Mets front office from earlier this week.
"Obviously we're a better team with Carlos Beltran," he said. "But that doesn't mean that Lucas Duda or Willie Harris or Scott Hairston on the bench can't step up. [The trade] is unfortunate, but we're all professionals and we're going to continue to go out there and play and go out there and win."
Pelfrey pitched a complete game allowing only 2 earned runs and 7 hits.
