The San Francisco Giants, according to general manager Brian Sabean, remain committed to re-signing 2B Marco Scutaro and OF Angel Pagan. The Pagan negotiations were expected to be slow because several teams are looking for a center fielder, while the Scutaro talks figured to go more quickly because of a mutual desire for his return to the Giants, but Sabean said no deal is close as Scutaro wades through all of his offers.

San Francisco Giants general manager Brian Sabean lashed out at Florida Marlins OF Scott Cousins for barreling into C Buster Posey (ankle) on the play that ended Posey's season. "Why not be hard nosed?" Sabean said. "If I never hear from Cousins again or he never plays another game in the big leagues, I think we'll all be happy. He chose to be a hero in my mind, and if that's his flash of fame, that's as good as it's going to get, pal. We'll have a long memory. Believe me, we've talked to (former catcher Mike) Matheny about how this game works. You can't be that out-and-out overly aggressive. I'll put it as politically as I can state it: There's no love lost and there shouldn't be."
