Got a 2 year, $7M deal.  The Giants re-signed Durham and Feliz, so it looks like Rich will be playing first, and serving as primary backup for those guys.  I thought he wanted an everyday job, but I guess this was close enough.

I might have preferred a Phillips/Aurilia double-play combo to Gonzalez-Phillips (Plus, it looks like Rich would be $1.5M a year cheaper than Gonzalez).  But never having seen Phillips at short, it’s really impossible to say.  The Reds certainly don’t like the idea of him there.
