Elbo: Hammonds in right?

Peter Gammons is reporting that the Giants will sign Jeffrey Hammonds to a one-year deal laden with incentives.

This is all right. If you're going to sign Jeffrey Hammonds, you should do it in such a way that you don't have to pay him a lot for long trips to the disabled list. I sure wouldn't count on him for much consistency, but I suspect he's penciled in as the opening-day right fielder. Penciled, as in on a medical chart.

I also see that the Kansas City Royals (!) are taking a crack at Benito, and that the Dodgers' bullpen just got a little weaker. I suppose the Yankees have to keep up with Boston now, but doesn't $6.8 million over two years seem like a little bit much for a setup man?
