Fantasy veterans know his story. Guess he will pout this year, just like he has done to every team he has ever played for. 1 good yr. 2 whinny ones. What is he now 49-50. What could possibly be holding those knees together.
The San Francisco Chronicle said catcher Benito Santiago is "playing with fire" by saying he'll play elsewhere in 2004 unless the Giants sign him to a contract extension by the end of spring training. Santiago's agent has approached the team about extending the two-year, $3.75 million contract that Santiago signed after the 2001 season. Santiago considers his $1.5 million salary for this year inadequate based on his performance last year.
