SOME HOT STOVEAGE
Looks as if the onslaught of signing pitchers has commenced. Randy Wolf signed a 1-yr. deal with the Dodgers. Adam Eaton signed a 3-yr. $24 million deal with the Phillies. Maybe these 2 deals give the GMs and agents a better idea where everyone stands. But prepare yourself; men such as Vincente Padilla and Ted Lilly could be making $10 million next year.
The Orioles have offered Chad Bradford 4 years and 90 Million. Just kidding but the Orioles are still dumb.
Gregg Zaun just signed a 2-yr./7.250 million deal to remian with the Blue Jays. Zaun will be the starter now. He hit .272/.363/.462 in 290 ABs last year. The Blue Jays should be talking to the agent for Julio Lugo. Russ Adams hit .135 against lefties last year. Lugo would be a perfect fit for the Jays.
The Jays will be thumping with Frank Thomas, Glaus, Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay, Alex Rios and Reed Johnson. Overbay had a terrific year hitting .312/.372/.508 with 22 HRs and 46 doubles.
Once again Manny Ramirez is being traded all around the league. We’ll see where he ends up. The Sox are said to be replacing him with J.D. Drew.
These guys would be worth a look…if the price is right:
- Tony Armas Jr.
- Keith Foulke
- Ronnie Belliard
- Joe Borowski
- Tony Graffanino
