Dodgers Ink World Series Champ Uribe

Uribe goes to rival LAD
The Los Angeles Dodgers continued a very surprisingly active winter, signing one of their rival's biggest bats.  Juan Uribe, the utility infielder who had very clutch home-runs throughout the 2010 postseason, has signed a 3-year deal worth $21M total. Uribe hit .248 with 24HR and can play 2B/SS/3B.  He will likely be the Dodgers' everyday second-baseman though.  It obviously pays to be a champion, as Uribe is a very good player but not worth $7M per year from a cash-strapped team like the L.A. Dodgers.  Still, the Dodgers have a terrific 2011 club based on a pitching rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda and recently signed Jon Garland and will likely contend in the NL West.
