SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Ryan Vogelsong visited the Houston Astros this week and had an uncomfortable feeling about how he might fit in, and he had discussions with other teams during the course of this offseason.
Each time, everything pointed him back to the Bay Area and the Giants. His wife, Nicole, loves it, too, and he said she kept "chirping in my ear every two seconds."
Vogelsong just needed some patience as the Giants figured out the rest of their roster. The free agent right-hander finalized a $4 million, one-year contract Friday to stay with San Francisco, a deal includes an additional $3 million in performance bonuses.
