Pagan back in the Orange and Black?

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area thinks so.

Though the post is 4 days old, that's the pace of news in the baseball world these days.Here's some of the verbiage -- The Giants remain focused on re-signing Pagan, and even though the expectation was that Pagan would let the market play out as Carlos Beltran did a year ago, I’m told that there is greater optimism that a deal can be reached between the two parties. Giants manager Bruce Bochy talked to Pagan on Thursday, and planned to touch base with second baseman Marco Scutaro in the coming days.

Pagan is looking for at least a three-year contract after scoring 95 runs and leading the majors with 15 triples. There are other free-agent outfield options such as Shane Victorino, Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn. But Bourn is expected to command the biggest salary of the bunch, and the Giants need a leadoff presence – something Pagan provided forcefully after moving back to the No.1 spot in the lineup on Aug. 3.
