Giants infielder Juan Uribe hopes that his strong season will land him a spot with the Giants in 2010. Uribe signed an inexpensive one year, one million dollar deal last offseason and is hitting forty points above his career average.

The Giants do not necessarily have to bring back Freddy Sanchez next season, and could rotate Uribe to second base with Renteria and Sandoval on the left side.
However, Renteria is having a down year for the second year in a row, with his numbers falling from to a .332 average with a .390 on-base percentage in 2007 to a .250 average with a .307 on-base percentage in 2009.
It is rare a team stays in playoff contention without solid depth on their bench, so the Giants would still be smart to try and bring back Freddy Sanchez, allowing Uribe to play between second and short next season.
