Vogey's back

Mlb.com's Chris Haft is reporting that Vogelsong is near a deal with the Giants.

The SF Chronicle's Bruce Jenkins proved how worthless he is a few days ago by saying that Vogey was gone.

Bruce has never cared much about facts. Way to embarrass the paper, Bruce. 

Has he bothered to acknowledge that he was in error? Well, here it is at 12:30 am Friday -- no word. 

Meanwhile, Haft explains succinctly what's going on here --


The Giants' current projected rotation consists of Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Jake Peavy and Tim Hudson. But Hudson (right ankle) and Cain (right elbow, right ankle) are coming off surgeries, though both are expected to be ready for the regular season. Lincecum is attempting to regain his form after ending last season in the bullpen. Peavy recorded a 6.19 ERA in four postseason starts. Swingman Yusmeiro Petit never has started for a full season in the Major Leagues.
Even Bumgarner, the World Series hero, must be watched carefully after working 270 innings, including a record 52 2/3 during the pressure-packed postseason in 2014.
It was widely assumed that Vogelsong would head elsewhere after Peavy signed a two-year deal on Dec. 23. However, about two weeks afterward, it was learned that Hudson underwent surgery, reviving the Giants' interest in Vogelsong.
