Ooh-Ree-Bye. Juan Uribe, a critical part of the SF Giants run to the World Series championship, is splitting town.

The versatile and fan-chanted Uribe will get $21 million for three years of service with the Dodgers. The Giants offered arbitration to the infielder, according to SFGate.com.

The Blue intend to use Uribe at second base -- a spot familiar to one former Giant, and probable hall-of-famer, Jeff Kent.

With the Giants, Uribe played some second base, but had won the shortstop role from Edgar Renteira. He spelled at third when Pablo Sandoval would slump, as well.

In 2010, had a career-high 24 homers with  85 RBIs, while hitting .248.
