SF Giants Rumors: Huff Is Out, Scutaro and Pagan Contracts, Rising Stars Game

It’s the move that everyone knew was coming… The San Francisco Giants have declined Aubrey Huff‘s $10 million option. Huff will not leave empty handed as the team must pay him a $2 million buyout. Oh, and 2 World Series rings!
Huff has had a drastic decline since the magical 2010 season. Majority of the fans are on board with this move and are thankful to Huff for the memories he brought us in 2010.

Marty Lurie of KNBR says (via Twitter), the Giants better offer Marco Scutaro two-years, and three-years ($27 million) to Angel Pagan. Lurie doesn’t think a two-year deal with an option will get the deal done for Pagan.

CSNBayArea.com reports that three Giants prospects (Gary Brown, Heath Hembree and Ricky Oropesa) will be playing in this year’s Rising Stars Game for the East Division. The game will take place Saturday, November 3rd, at 5 p.m.

    Belt needs to keep improving offensively.

  • I think if we offer Scutaro 2 years, he is ours. I would not offer Pagan a contract longer than 3 years. I think 2012 will go down as his career year and his speed while fast is certainly in decline. His best stolen base years are behind him. I would not be surprised if he gets $10 a year from someone, but I hope Marty Lurie’s 3-years at $27M gets it done.

    Thank you Huff for 2010, but I will not miss the 2011 and 2012 Huff at all.

    I agree with Scutaro at 2 years, and Pagan at 3 years 9M per year. If Affeldt is looking for a 3 year deal at 7M per year, then please let him go. He does look OK now, but we will regret the signing by year 2. I would like to bring back Theriot, he is a handy guy to have around. Also, I would bring back Melky. Forgive his mistake, he is still a valuable asset.
