Giants’ negotiations with Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro are “mired in molasses”

Giants general manager Brian Sabean has made it clear that he’d like to re-sign both Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro, but Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that negotiations are “mired in the molasses of this offseason’s player movement.”

Sabean told Schulman that he’s not close to a deal with either free agent, calling it “just the nature of doing business these days.”

According to Schulman it’s more likely that San Francisco will re-sign Scutaro, who’s older and in less demand than Pagan.
