"Reports Friday out of San Francisco indicated that Roberts was prepared to sign a three-year contract with the Giants. He supposedly had narrowed his choices to Milwaukee and San Francisco.
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said he had not heard from Roberts' agent, John Boggs, as of Friday afternoon. But Melvin was not surprised to hear that Roberts reportedly had picked the Giants."
As long as it's 18M or less, hurray. I guess.
Kind of hard to get excited about your team signing a platoon leadoff man when you have no 3/4/5 hitters. Roberts is prone to nagging injuries, and Bochy has shown willingness to platoon him, so Linden should still get a decent number of AB's. Especially if Bonds returns.
