Eckstein Going North of the Border
Former Gator & World Series MVP Shortstop David Eckstein agreed to terms with the Toronto Blue Jays on a one-year, $4.5 million contract on Thursday.
Eckstein had a career-high .309 batting average for the St.
Louis Cardinals last season with three homers, 31 RBIs and 10
Eckstein, who was the MVP of the Cardinals' World Series triumph in 2006, is expected bat leadoff for the Blue Jays.
Eckstein, who batted .364 with four RBIs in the five-game series win over the Tigers, also won a World Series with the Angels in 2002.
The move likely means that incumbent John McDonald, who signed a $3.8 million, two-year contract in September, will be relegated to a backup role.
