Ray Durham wore a Giants uniform for the last time, then packed up his locker and went to join the Milwaukee Brewers on the other side of the ballpark before leaving town with his new team.

San Francisco traded the veteran second baseman to the Brewers for two minor leaguers, with both clubs waiting until after the teams played Sunday to announce the swap. That, in fact, was per Durham’s request as he didn’t want to suit up for his first game for Milwaukee against the Giants.

“Personally it was out of respect for the guys in this locker room,” Durham said, saying his goodbyes in the Giants’ clubhouse. “It really was a stipulation I asked for.”

An emotional Durham could only stand to be in the Giants’ dugout for a few innings during the series finale against Milwaukee, but was prepared to make the switch right afterward and head to St. Louis with the Brewers. The 36-year-old second baseman, in his sixth season with San Francisco and the final year of a two-year contract, had to approve the deal.

I say keep the $50 and ban him anyway...

For those jumping ship, we'll keep the bandwagon warm for you...
