The AP is reporting that much traveled free agent OF Moises Alou will be reunited with his father, manager Felipe Alou for the second time, by signing a two-year, $13.25 million contract with the Giants.

Alou, a prodigious power hitter (and advocate of urinating on his own hands) for much of his career, should make walking Barry Bonds a less attractive option (assuming Barry doesn’t report to spring training weighing 160 pounds). On the other hand, with two thirds of his starting outfield a combined 80 years of age, perhaps it would make sense for Peter Magowan to start lobbying for adding the DH to the National League next year.
