Juan Uribe officially signed with the Dodgers on Tuesday, receiving a $21 million contract over three seasons. According to an industry source, the Giants matched the offer from the Dodgers near the last minute. The Dodgers put heat on Uribe to take their offer or risk having it be pulled. "I have nothing bad to say about the Giants," said Uribe. "To the contrary, I'm very happy with how the fans treated me. They showed me a lot of affection. I'm very appreciative of the opportunity. As for leaving, I have no control over that."
