MLB Giants sign OF Nori Aoki

San Fran as signed FA OF Nori Aoki to a 1 year $4 million contract. From SF perspective, this is a great deal at a lost cost and term. Aoki was a pivotal part of KC' playoff run, with his bat and glove. He now goes to San Fran where he'll be working similar if not better guys and will have a lot of opportunities to shine.

From a Bluejays perspective, are you kidding me? Here's a guy who could have helped this team immensely in terms of experience, bat and glove, and yet we walk away from this. The notion at the time when we were linked to him was that both the term and money were not right for the Jays, and yet Aoki signs for 1 year $4 million. It's absurd.

Decent move since Pagan gets hurt so much and Blanco can never handle the offensive side of being a full-time player.
