Giants Sign Rowand

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

The Giants have signed outfielder Aaron Rowand to a five year deal, worth an 60 million dollars, according to ESPNEWS. I am very surprised that Rowand would accept something this low, especially after Torii Hunter got 90 million for five years. Not only that, but he is going to a team that has not been any good over the past couple of years, so you'd think he demand more. I'll look into it, but as of right now, I think it is a good move for the Giants.

As a Phillies fan, I'll be sad to see him go. Then again, if he is in fact getting $80 million over 5 years, that's too steep a contract. I think the Giants will regret this move. I love the "Flyin' Hawaiian" Shane Victorino in centerfield anyway.

eww. Sabean's desperate attempt to answer the great 2 yr andrew jones signing. i hate Sabean. he's a horrible GM now. I dont care about his past resume. right now he doesnt know a thing.

I'm going to be so happy once he's fired.

Giants have the makings of the best pitching staff in the league so don't be surprised if after a couple of more offensive additions come in the next year or so, we're right back on top of the standings. Rowand knows what he's doing - excellent signing!
