I like the deal, gives us help at 3B immediately with a guy who rarely strikes out and has decent OBP. I didnt want to pay Youk the money it likes like he will receive, it can be better spent on a starter or a catcher. In today's baseball world $4 million per annum is a below average salary. Gives us better bench depth too in the future if Sanchez comes up next year or if we obtain a 3B prospect for Floyd....
... and I agree that the comparison to Teahan is off base... Keppinger has been a more consistnt two way player and is a known quantity
