    - Dave Roberts agreed to an $18 million, three-year contract with the San Francisco Giants on Saturday, reuniting the outfielder with manager Bruce Bochy.

    The 34-year-old Roberts spent the past two seasons with Bochy in San Diego and had said he would be interested in following his manager to the Giants. San Francisco hired Bochy last month to replace Felipe Alou.

    "The comfort level is extremely high for me, having a manager I respect and love playing for and being in the same division," Roberts said.

After October of '04 I'll never have a bad word to say about Dave Roberts, unless he ends up on one particular team. Yet, $6 million a year for the next 3 years to a guy in his mid 30's who relies on his legs? Think Vlad Guerrero is wishing he had entered the free agent market this season rather than during the tight money market of a few years ago?

Tell you what. That must have been the greates stolen base ever for him to land an $18 million deal. I guess if your not gonna sign Bonds, you'll have more money to throw away. Glad to see that the Yankees aren't the only ones who waste money.

Rusty Shackleford is just the name he uses to order Pizza with.

#4 Posted on | Instant Rating: 5.05 ( is reporting that the Giants haven't just signed Roberts, but also Bengie Molina, Rich Aurilia, and they resigned Pedro Feliz to boot. Looks like the Giants have confused the World Series title with the 'oldest team in baseball' championship.

"I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes."

At least the Yankees make the playoffs every year.

Derek Jeter is a very good player and deserves every bit of credit for being a leader and a clutch hitter but one of the best players in the league? I don't think so.
