In wake of the Dodgers signing of Juan Uribe, which should become official on Tuesday, here are some numbers to consider. Uribe has hit 20 home runs in four of the last seven seasons, averaging 18 home runs per year from 2004-2010. How does that stack up against other second basemen in Dodger history?

Then again, Uribe's career on-base percentage is .2998. There have been 14 seasons in Dodger franchise history in which a second baseman has put up a sub-.300 OBP in 400 or more PA, the most recent coming from Alex Cora in the offensively challenged season of 2003:
