OOOOOO—-Ribe!!!

He’s gone, bolting for the Dodgers.

…. After losing postseason hero Juan Uribe to the Dodgers despite offering him a three-year, $20 million deal, the Giants have agreed to a one-year contract with Miguel Tejada with plans to make him their everyday shortstop, sources confirmed.

Tejada told ESPN Deportes the value is $6.5 million. He still needs to pass a physical.

I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I am happy Sabean didn’t sign Uribe to a three year deal worth $20 million, because that is simply too much and too long. And Tejada is essentially the same player, perhaps a little less likely to hit a home run, but also a bit less likely to strike out.

On the other hand, Uribe certainly had a flair for the dramatic, and was a fan favorite. I liked him, even though he would swing for the fences virtually every time. I’ll wish him well, as long as he’s doing it against every team but the Giants.
