As sad is is to see the saga on Andres Torres end in San Francisco, both him and Ramirez with arbitration eligible, and with them off the books give the Giants more wiggle room to make some other moves. 

Pagan hit a respectable .262/.322/.372 for the Mets in 2011, along with 7 homers, 56 RBI and an OPS of .694. He also stole 32 bases and brings a lot of speed to the depths of AT&T's outfield, and likely will take over as the Giants lead-off hitter. The one area of concern is his defense, committing 10 errors for New York last season.
