Giants announce they have signed Santiago Casilla to three-year deal.

The deal includes a club/vesting option for a fourth year and is pending a physical. According to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press, the deal is worth $15 million over the first three years.
$15 million could also get you approximately 4,285,714.29 cases of Mylanta if the average retail price is $3.50.*
For the approximate length where Casilla is going to be in a San Francisco uniform, the Giants might probably have to do some Jairo-related giveaways to ignore the impending implosions.
That’s a frightening thing to think about at this point in the offseason.
*I buy store brand, so I don’t know what the average retail price is anymore.
