Affeldt Signing Reactions

Giants GM Brian Sabean kicked off the free agent proceedings yesterday by signing southpaw Jeremy Affeldt to a two-year, $8MM deal.  Reactions:

  • ESPN's Keith Law likes the move.  Affeldt has good stuff, it's a short-term deal, and it doesn't cost the Giants a draft pick.  Affeldt definitely could've gotten more money elsewhere.
  • El Lefty Malo says "this was about as good a cost/benefit move the Giants could make for a free agent reliever."
  • Affeldt says signing was a no-brainer for him after the Giants came in and met the dollars he was looking for.  Henry Schulman's San Francisco Chronicle article implies Affeldt could get a shot at starting at some point during the deal.
