"...they’re fairly certain other teams won’t value him quite as highly, and that they don’t value him as highly as Giants fans enamored by the jazz-hands homers, clutch at-bats and infectious personality Take a look at Uribe’s splits. That’s what other teams are going to do, and they’re going to reach the same conclusion they reached last offseason: Uribe is a pretty good player, but not worthy of the big-money, multi-year deal he seeks. With the exception of a September power surge, which underscores his local and deserved reputation as a clutch hitter, Uribe’s numbers -- his OPS, in particular -- dipped every month. That’s what clubs, including the Giants, are going to lean on at the bargaining table... In other words, Uribe isn’t going to get Aubrey Huff money from anyone. Perhaps the Giants are hoping he’ll soon realize that, accept arbitration and take the raise (from $3.5 million to, say, $5 million) that he earned in 2010."
