White Sox/Uribe Agree To Terms
The Chicago White Sox re-signed short-stop Juan Uribe to a 1-year, $4.5M contract. The move saves Chicago $500,000 as they had a $5M option in his contract. On the down-side, Juan hasn't had a .300-OBP season since 2005 and has definitely lost a step at short. But who's gonna argue that he's a worse choice than Giant's short-stop Omar Vizquel?
Seems like a move just to save some time up the middle for the White Sox, as Uribe definitely won't be a starting short-stop for much longer.
