2010: The Dodgers sign free agent Juan Uribe to a three-year, $21 million deal to play second base for the team. The enthusiastic and versatile 31-year-old Dominican infielder, who was part of the Giants’ 2010 World Series championship run, also gives new manager Don Mattingly more options at shortstop and third base. Uribe would wind up batting just .204, 4 HR, 28 RBI in 77 games for the Dodgers in 2011.
1961: The Giants acquire two hurlers, Don Larsen and Billy Pierce, in exchange for four players being sent to the White Sox. Both pitchers contribute to the Giants’ National League championship, with Pierce winning 16 games for San Francisco.
