BTW, Sanchez @ MLB:

“It’s hard to compare teams, and I’m never going to say anything bad or anything that will be interpreted as bad against Chicago, because they treated me really well,” Uribe said. “They gave me love in Chicago. They gave me confidence. That organization will always be special to me. It’s the same situation here in San Francisco.”

Fangraphs on Juan Uribe

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ September 30, 2010 7:36 pm


Juan Uribe is eight plate appearances away from topping 1,000 for his Giants’ career. An absurd twist to Uribe’s career has him playing the role of starting shortstop on a playoff team in the year 2010. Absurd in the sense that Uribe very easily could be out of the majors right now. His 2007 and 2008 seasons were downright horrible. Rarely do defensive-first middle infielders nearing the wrong side of 30 continue getting looks when their defense seems to be on the brink of extinction. …

Don’t skip the last sentence!

Joe Cowley says season’s over; but he has a plan!

Cowley says replace Mark Buehrle and Gavin Floyd with Cliff Lee and Daniel Hudson, re-sign Freddy Garcia, trade Bobby Jenks, re-sign J.J. Putz, pickup Matt Thornton’s option, say goodbye to Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski, Carlos Quentin, promote Dayan Viciedo and Tyler Flowers, sign Carl Crawford or Adam Dunn, and sign the one and only Juan Uribe.

I say forget free-agents and the money in the draft and international scouting.

Ozzie Guillen on his World Series infield with Tadahito Iguchi and Juan Uribe: “You should have heard the conversations on the mound. We never knew what they were saying. Iguchi doesn’t speak any English, and Uribe doesn’t speak anything anyone can understand.”

Baggarly (via MLBTR):

In other news, Sabean said he has spoken to each of the Giants’ impending free agents to communicate the team’s intentions. Specifically, Juan Uribe informed them that he plans to test the market.

The return of profundo?

“When he’s seeing the ball well, he can do a lot of things for you,” said Bochy, adding he had received a glowing recommendation from White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. “If you have Juan Uribe, you love him. He’s a lot of fun in the clubhouse, and he’s loose. He’s so valuable, you can put him anywhere.”
