Happy Trails: Andres Torres to San Francisco

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area is reporting that free agent New York Mets CF Andres Torres has agreed to a 1 yr contract with the San Francisco Giants.

Despite Torres batting just .230 last season there was significant talk of bringing him back at a reduced cost due to the rapidly declining number of right handed free agent OF'ers.

(I'm not too upset about it, however, the number of OF'ers available is declining fast. The less options there are to sift through, the more of a chance that the team will end up digging in the scrap heap for more insignificant guys. Alderson NEEDS to bring back Hairston and quickly because the less options there are....the more leverage Hairston has to demand more money.)
