Did you read the post where Mr LA used era to prove a point and somebody bolded era and responded "???"
And his response was "earned run average"
Haha ya. Him and ODP should have a post war. I'm not sure who'd come out on top.
Sabez will bring us Giancarlo for Hacktor !
Hector is lethal, remember guys?
Plus they're pretty equal. Only separate batting average's of .10 points and he's a catcher so that adds value. It'd be a fair deal.
A bit much, but I am glad we kept him.
Well at least we know he can take a beating and still rake but no Swish damn maybe we can get Choo through trade lol
Three years at age 37? It kind of reminds me of the Omar Vizquel contract.
Salary breakdown: 2 mil signing bonus. 6 mil for the next 3 years.
More on the signing:
The Giants fell in love with Scutaro’s attitude and clubhouse presence as much as his unbelievable run as the No.2 hitter.
They appreciate him even more now. From what I’ve been told, Scutaro’s agents came to the Giants early in the offseason and told them that a three-year, $20 million contract would get it done.
The Giants preferred a two-year structure. Meanwhile, Scutaro’s agents fielded other offers and the money went up and up. He had a two-year offer for close to $18 million from the Cardinals, who went as far as to arrange Matt Holliday to give Scutaro a call in case there were any lingering hard feelings from his takeout slide in the NLCS. I’m not sure that call was ever made, though, as the Giants sweetened their offer to three years and $20 million.
That’s a far lower average annual value, obviously, and there was some doubt whether Scutaro would accept it. But just as Scutaro’s agents promised, three and twenty got it done.
Scutaro was good to his word.
I wish more players wanted to be a Giant
