Juan Uribe has signed a 3-year $21 million deal with the Dodgers.
My first real Giants break up. I was under no illusions that this team would stay the same forever. Heck, it didn’t’ stay the same throughout the season. But I also knew it would be weird to see players I’ve come to love wearing someone else’s uniform, a freakin’ Dodgers uniform, no less.
I’ll miss his ability to hit clutch, and I love him at third base way more than the Panda. On the other hand, I’m glad the Giants didn’t spend that kind of money to resign a 31 year old who hasn’t had a .300+ batting average since his debut in 2001.
Speaking of resigning old players, I’m not AS stoked as I was last post about Huff returning, now that they’ve announced that the deal consists of a 2-year $20 million contract. I don’t think I would have paid that much. There’s a reason it’s called a “career year” (singular). Let’s hope it pays off.
Ch..ch..ch..changes. Now we need a new shortstop.
