Eckstein----> D-Backs

"I'm definitely very excited with the opportunity to go out there and make the postseason," Eckstein said after helping the Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees. "You play this game to win a world championship, so that's hopefully what we'll be able to try to accomplish."

The 2006 World Series MVP with St. Louis, Eckstein batted .277 with a homer, 23 RBIs and a .354 on-base percentage in a part-time role for Toronto. Known for his all-out effort at 5-foot-7, he also helped the Angels win the 2002 World Series.

"Oh, October baseball, it's the best baseball," Eckstein said. "The thing about it is, it's where all that matters is whether you win or lose. It doesn't matter the stats or anything like that. At the end of the day, the only thing that anybody cares about is if you got something in the "W' column or not."

A shortstop for nearly his entire big league career, Eckstein will play second base in Arizona, potentially sharing time with Augie Ojeda.

 

For some reason I find this move to be hilarious.
