As for the Giants re-signing Ryan Vogelsong, another starting pitcher or an everyday left fielder, we’ll have to continue waiting.
Nutshell: It’s Vogelsong or another SP, not both. #SFGiants are out on Tanaka. Javier Lopez should re-sign soon. New everyday LF doubtful.

I’m just happy to hear that things are finally coming together with Lopez. I can’t imagine him on any other MLB team to finish out his career. And definitely not one with pinstripes.
