There was talk of 3 years and $13 million for this guy. Shades of Mark Teahen contract.

I understand Keppinger is quite the contact hitter. Is this right?

I wonder if he's the new utility guy or the new third basemen.

Yes. Not a lot of power though.

Also, it should be stated that Keppinger will be 33 this season.

3 yrs of Keppinger = 1 yr of Youkilis

Unless Keppinger regresses to Morel-level production this is a good deal

Well this is just about on par with my expectations. IMO, the amount of years are a probably one too many, but it's not like there were many options

Looking at his numbers, he looks like the same player as Marco Scutaro, just a little younger and (hopefully) cheaper. And look what Scutaro just got paid.

It's a good move. Let's see if he can keep it up.
