Juan Uribe close to signing with the Giants

Dec 24, 2009, 11:12 AM EDT

Rosenthal tweets that Juan Uribe is close to returning to the Giants.  The Yankees and Red Sox have arms races involving ace starting pitchers. The Giants and Dodgers one-up each other with marginal infielders like Juan Uribe and Jamey Carroll.

Seriously though, he had a decent enough year as a second baseman/utility guy in San Francisco last year, so it makes sense that they want him back.

    Since it’s just you and me and Jason here, let’s break out the eggnog and knock off at noon to go Christmas shopping at Walgreen’s. Yes. I caught the tag.

    I’m beginning to think the Giants are blind to what’s going on in Los Angeles. The Dodgers have left so many doors open to their rivals, and the Giants keep going right on past them. It’s sad.
    And, Craig, you’ve got to give up this blogging thing. If the NBC folks make you work on Christmas Eve, it might be worth going on back to the feds. At least they know how to give a proper vacation day!

    I mean seriously, the office is empty, the boss is still hung over from the holiday party, no one will ever know. And since this place is so empty, let me just say a big happy holidays/merry christmas to all the good folk who wander round these parts: Craig, Jason, Len, Richard, Jack Marshall, that Gator guy whose comments are hilarious, that Peach fella, dcfan, neon noodle, (old school nod) sara k., David for being David, and the rest of the many good-hearted, reasonable people that are attracted to the works of one Craig “don’t call it a comeback when I pull out the lawyer skills and put a whoopin’ on ya” Calcaterra.

    By adding Uribe the Giants would almost get back to the offensive level of 2009. Let’s review. 2009 the Giants and Padres duked it out for the most horrific offense in all of baseball. They lost 20 HRs with Molina, leadership with Winn, and let go of Garko. They had career years from Sandoval, Uribe, and Cain. Now in 2010, they will be relying on two rookies, both in critical positions. How many career years will the Giants be relying on in 2010?
    This seems to be a team without a soul, unwilling to make a move to develop a world series contender, only satisfied with “contending” for the ever-winnable NL west.

    The Giants were able to marginally increase their offensive output when they moved Pablo Sandoval to first and started Uribe at third. If they don’t sign a first baseman, that would seem to be the best option.
