Dutch_Oven45

Giants re-sign Derek Holland. Holland was roughly a 2-WAR player last season and the lefty led the team with 171-1/3 IP. The deal, if the option for next season is picked up and all the performance incentives are met, maxes out at $15M. Figure they are on the hook for about $8M, not a bad risk for one year. He gives the team a predictable rotation piece as well as a potential mid-season trade chip.

NYSE: ORCL

PhoneCo is no mo--Giants tap Big O. 

In the I'm-not-sure-it-matters-much Department, our ballpark will be getting a new name, it's fourth. PacBell Park morphed into SBC Park and then into AT&T Park. Next up: Oracle Park. Time for a nickname contest!
