Vogelsong set on continuing his stellar pitching

6

Gotta prop up my son! Vogelsong: "When you’re growing up you don’t see yourself struggling and getting booed and having nights where you can’t sleep because you can’t figure out what’s going on," Vogelsong said. "To finally be helping a team and to be counted on to win big games – that’s the part that felt good." This guy is all heart. We all know about him turning down the Dodgers at the beginning of last year to sign as an NRI with the Giants, giving us our feel-good story of the season. He continued to bleed orange and black this offseason: For the first time in years, Vogelsong felt that he was wanted, which made the decisions easy when it came time to negotiate a new contract. After several phone calls between the Giants and Vogelsong's side, a two-year, $8.3 million contract was agreed upon in January. "It's the first time in my career that I've ever had someone be like, 'We want you around, and not just for one year, but for two and maybe three,' " Vogelsong said. "That was the most gratifying part. It was a pretty easy process." Seriously, he came up through the system. Once a Giant at heart, always a Giant at heart. I'm proud of my son!
