Vogelsong was 9-11 last year with the San Francisco Giants.  His last “great”  year was as a 34 year old with a 13-7 record for the Giants in 2011. With average stuff and below average command, Vogelsong is a known commodity. It’s impossible not to feel like the Pirates are searching for a diamond in the rough.  Can their pitching coach, Ray Searage get him back to top form? After all they made A.J. Burnett a star again at age 38.
