Dodgers Targeting 'Obi' Juan Uribe

It's not much, but it's all the Dodgers news we have to talk about this morning. At least the starting rotation is set. When was the last time we could say that?

UPDATE: What is it about overpaying guys named Juan? Deal is for 3 years/$21 million.

Say it ain't so,Joe!

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

ugh - I may have a hard time pulling for Uribe

Dusto_Magnifico said...

Booo-repaid.

I was thinking 3 years at 12 million. Not 21.

Steve Sax said...

My God, is there ANY GIANTS RETREAD WE WON'T TAKE???

rbnlaw said...

Fuck me in the armpit.

karen said...

He'll always be a fucking gnat to me

Fred's Brim said...

21? 21 what? 21 hats that slob will sweat through this season? christalmighty

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Seven million a year is a steep price, but at least they spent it on the (gag) right guy.

karina said...

This is indeed a very sad day: Irvin Kershner dies and Dodgers sign Uribe.

Mr. Colletti, this is not a nice gift for Vin, we're supposed to win for him, not to hire am expensive hand me down who previously won said ring for the Giants.

:(

karina said...

^an

Mr. Customer said...

Don't think I've forgotten that our General Manager is a hand-me-down from those assholes, too.

Steve Sax said...

"Help me Obi Juan, you're my only ho...ly shit, you are HUUUUUUUGE! How the hell are you supposed to help us?"

karina said...

@Mr C you feel my pain

rbnlaw said...

Happy, I am not.

karina said...

There was a nice rumor about Scutaro around...

*sighs*

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

WTF
uhm...
WTF
There's actually Battery-Chuckers up here now barking that he sucks, etc, when yesterday, he was a God to them.
Giants fans are retards, I swear.

This is a tough pill.

Mr. Customer said...

@PPR

That's the truth, brother.

Eric Karros said...

@FB 12:29PM,

A Mack Truck would have a hard time pulling Uribe.

Eric Karros said...

Just in from WikiLeaks: Juan Uribe is fat.

Eric Karros said...

My last 3 comments including the one in the other post have been childish jabs at Uribe's weight.

*smiles proudly*

I'm on a roll! Crap, better get off, cuz here comes a hungry-looking Juan...

Dusty Baker said...

I was in a meeting all day, so haven't had a chance to digest the Uribe news yet. This has been rumoured in the news recently so I guess it doesn't come as a surprise. Interesting to hear your hate Hate HATE in reaction to the signing.

I'm not hating the news yet, but could be convinced otherwise. It will take some getting used to that he may be a fat bastard, but he's our fat bastard.

NicJ said...

meh, whatever.

Better than Jeff Kent.

Obi is a good nickname though.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hah. Dusty lost.

Dusty Baker said...

Er, I'm glad you find my loss so enjoyable.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I just thought it was funny how Jason only had the 49er defense left and a 10 point deficit to overcome.

Dusty Baker said...

I have to say that Arizona team I watched tonight is one of the handsdownshittiest teams I have ever witnessed play in the NFL. Just god awful. They should be relegated. Mother of god do they suck. They actually make 49'ers look halfway decent, which in and of itself is a mountainous task.

Paul said...

Ned is still working for the Giants. I know things *cue x files music*

Dusty Baker said...

True Conversations Volume 54, Issue 108:

Mrs Dusty [Watching MLB Network Hot Stove piece on Juan Uribe]: What are the Sons saying tonight?

Dusty [Glances at SoSG blog]: MMMmmm....Sons aren't seeing much action tonight.

Dusty: And there's not a lot of talk about Uribe on their blog, either.

Dusty Baker said...

Still ain't hating the Uribe thing, folks. Call me Giants-loving Josh.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Don't disrespect X Files by associating them with Jints.

Agent Scully was named after our own VInny, you know.

Paul said...

Glad the Chargers defense scored those TDs last night.

Paul said...

exactly Dusty, this Giants plan has been in the works for decades. They are all around us. Remember Vinny was a Giants fan as a Kid! So was Torre!

There is an unseen war of good versus evil here.

Vinny is okay now. I think the aliens brainwashed him as kid.

Dusty Baker said...

Ned (Colletti, not Flanders) on Hot Stove tonight. Said that Broxton was the closer; issue is w/ his confidence. Still thinking through Karina's Son but not sounding positive.

Paul said...

Oh we also have Josh loving the Giants only during the "NLCS".

They are growing in numbers....

Uribe is like my ex-girlfriend. One year sounds great, three years sounds like a waste of money.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah but I wanted to be an astronaut when I was a kid, too. SHows how much I knew, and how much Joe and Vin knew when they foolishly supported the New York baseball Jints as children.

I just realized: today is my grandmother's 90th birthday and she shares it with Vinny. Does this make him my baseball step-grandfather?

That would make him your step-great uncle no?

Where is Neeebs with that memo?

Paul said...

Ice is already forming on my car. It was like 90 here 7 weeks ago.

Did I live Afghanistan?....eh close enough.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Can you sell me some opium in that case?

Wicks said...

If we can deal with Jeff Kent being a Dodger, we can deal with Uribe. The 3 year contract is bad but this guy should be solid for us for at least 2 years. He is an elite 2B with the glove (his range factor and UZR is just below Utley's).

Dusty Baker said...

Agree, Wicks.

Spanky said...

Who said we dealt with Kent? I never liked that piece of shit. Fuck that Gnat,tambien!

Wicks said...

well I dealt with Kent.....sorry to speak for others.....hahahaha

Jeff Kent said...

I had mad range at 2B for you guys.
