I can hear the chants already starting up in the Trop.

Just close your eyes, and picture Iwamura up with Crawford on 2nd and Delmon on 3rd. ;-D

Looks like they are just hammering out some minor deatils accoriding to DRO and Aki's agent. Looks like 4 years over 10 mill.

Looking like it will be 3 years 7.5 mill. Not a bad investment when you add in the posting fee, if he can produce over the next 3 years.

Roto:

Devil Rays signed infielder Akinori Iwamura to a three-year, $7.7 million contract.

Iwamura will make $1.8 million in 2007, $2.4 million in 2008 and $3.25 million in 2009. The club has a $4.25 million option for 2010 with a $250,000 buyout. Once the deal ends, Iwamura is expected to become a free agent, even though he won't have the requisite six years of service time. Iwamura is likely to play third base for the Rays. His power probably isn't going to translate so well to the U.S., so he might be below average offensively. However, he could make up for it with his glove. A switch to second base is a possibility later, especially if Evan Longoria gets off to a fast start in the minors. Dec. 15 - 2:59 pm et


This is a great sign. Friedman is about to be on local radio talking about the signing and other Rays news.
