Giants Strike First

The Giants signed the first free agent in the MLB for 2009, today. They inked Jeremey Affeldt to a 2-year $8 million deal.

Keith Law breaks down the signing and is surprisingly supportive of the move and the terms.

Law is usually pretty pessimistic and seemingly more so with the Giants, so this was a nice change.

The Giants weren't able to find a reliable left handed reliever since Eyre left and Affeldt is more than just a LOOGY.
