The Pagan angle is not new. The Phillies and Giants each reportedly made him a four-year offer. Ross, though, is a new wrinkle. Rosenthal notes that neither the Giants or Phillies see Ross as a center fielder or lead-off man, so he's not precisely a fallback plan in lieu of Pagan. Ross, of course, was a key stretch-drive addition by the Giants in 2010 in winning their first World Series since 1954.
Pagan, a core member of the Giants' 2012 championship team, is coming off a season in which he batted .288/.338/.440 with 29 steals in 36 chances, 38 doubles and a majors-leading 15 triples. He also provided outstanding defense in center. Pagan, 31, is hitting .281/.333/.424 for his career.
As for Ross, the 31-year-old batted .267/.326/.481 for the Red Sox last season. While he's capable of manning all three outfield positions, he's best suited to the corners.
