SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Angel Pagan has no problem making bold statements at the start of spring training: He's calling a repeat championship for San Francisco in 2013.
With nearly the same roster returning from last fall's special run to the title - the second in three years for the franchise - Pagan figures, why not?
Along one clubhouse wall at Scottsdale Stadium are the lockers for Pagan, Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez. The three are connected in a rare scenario in which Torres and Ramirez were traded to the New York Mets for Pagan before last season, and now both are back with San Francisco alongside Pagan after they helped the Giants win the 2010 World Series.
Pagan plans to play with the same passion even with a new $40 million, four-year deal.
