From ESPN.com's Keith Law (insider only) his take on the Uribe deal (and look at the adjective he uses!):
• The Dodgers gave three years and $21 million to Juan Uribe, he of the .302 OBP (once you back out intentional walks) in 2010, a walk year in which he posted career highs in walks and home runs. Putting men on base was not a strength of the Dodgers before they added Uribe, with only Andre Ethier and oft-injured Rafael Furcal coming off seasons where they posted OBPs over .350. Uribe, meanwhile, has never so much as seen a .330 OBP and eats up some of the value he adds on defense by making extra outs at the plate -- and since his BABIP and home run total were both flukishly high in 2010, he's not a great bet to earn his salary over the course of the deal. I liked Uribe on a shorter-duration deal and/or for a club that needed defense but had guys who got on base at higher clips, but the Dodgers don't seem like a good fit for his skill set.
I appreciate SoSG Dusty Baker, among others, leading the charge to give Uribe a chance next year (and the two years after). I like his thinking. I'm going to try and keep an open mind about this one.
