    White Sox to sign Jeff Keppinger

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/1...keppinger.html

    The only detail known about his contract is that it's for 3 years.

    I'm not too high on this signing. But 3yrs for some marginal players seems to be the rate in this FA market.
    Hopefully they sign a platoon partner for him like Chavez.

    Keppinger three-year deal with #WhiteSox for about $12M.

    I can live with that. If the Sox have other/better options later on, he can slide into a utility role.

    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Jeff Keppinger's three-year deal with the White Sox is worth around $12 million.

    This is right in line with estimates we have heard over the past 24 hours. The White Sox bought high on Keppinger after he batted .325/.367/.439 with nine homers, 40 RBI and an .806 OPS this past season. The 32-year-old broke his right fibula when he fell down a flight of stairs at his house, but he should be ready to be the ChiSox regular third baseman in 2013.

    Good deal. He could play 3rd base.

    Really thought he was going to be a Yankee.

    I guess 3 years was too much for them though.

    3 years isnt the end of the world for a guy who can play so many positions. There's always going to be a use for him in Chicago over the next 3 years.

    I was hoping he would be a Yankee as well, potentially as a platoon with Chavez.

    What's the sense with Youk? Is he realistic for you guys? Gotta say I hope not, because I can't stop rooting for him.

    They were linked to him, and it will become more of a possibility as all of the third base options out there are signing elsewhere.

    I've always like him, ever since he played for the Reds. i was kind of hoping they would sign him, but they didn't even talk to him.

    Am I the only one who thinks he's bad? He's put up a negative WAR in about half his seasons. He won't be able to repeat last season.
