This day in baseball: Moises Alou signs with the Giants

On December 27, 2004, the San Francisco Giants signed free-agent outfielder Moises Alou to a one-year contract with an option for a second year. The Cubs refused to offer arbitration and let Alou go following the 2004 season, citing numerous fights with umpires. Alou’s signing with San Francisco marked the second time he would be managed by his father, Felipe, who was also his skipper when playing with the Expos from 1992-1996.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not shaking hands with him to congratulate him on signing a big deal, even if I’m his dad.
