Giants lock up Durham

The Giants have agreed to a 2 year deal with Ray Durham, reportedly for slightly more than $14 million.

Not a terrible deal, I guess...Durham is a lousy defensive second baseman, but he's got good on-base skills, and is actually coming off his best season, at age 34.

He isn't likely to repeat what he did in 2006, but on a short-term deal, he's a reasonable option. And the Giants are a lot better off with this deal than with Juan Pierre or GMJ, two guys they supposedly pursued and missed out on...
