Of all of the end of season reviews this has been the one that I have been looking forward to least. Now that the drama surrounding his exit to the Dodgers has come to light the great memories of Juan Uribe in Giants uniform are at the very least tainted.

Now that a little bit of time has passed by and the emotions of the deal are past me I can say that I can separate what he did as a Giants the last two seasons and what is coming with him as a Dodger.

Juan was an exciting player to put it lightly, he had some of the biggest hits and plays in 2010 and gave us all some really great memories.

The jazz hands, the full monies worth swing and the rocket arm. The home run he hit in Dodger stadium where the Giants absolutely stole a game from the Dodgers who were about to go down in flames. The sac fly he hit off of Roy Oswalt (Where I was in the middle of class and had my phone die just before it happened still haunts me). The still to this day unbelievable opposite field home run in game 6.

These are memories that will never be forgotten but until you switch to a different uniform or hang up the spikes won't be spoken of in the same way.

If your on Twitter you should definitely follow the The Crazy Crabbers. If you're not you should really consider joining, lots of good stuff going on there.
