It looks like the reigning World Series champion San Francisco Giants will not have one of their clutch hitters in 2011.

ESPN is reporting Juan Uribe has all but agreed to a three year $21 million deal with the dreaded Dodgers.

Giants announcer Renel Moon is not going to be pleased.  She came up with the signature call of OOOOO-ribe that the fans quickly mimicked.

His departure leaves the Giants in greater need for a bat.

Uribe's batting average in the post-season was among the bottom dwellers, but he came up with several clutch hits that helped propel the team to victory.

The move doesn't come as a surprise.  Last week the Giants offered the slugger salary arbitration.  Uribe had until Tuesday to accept or reject the offer.
