Major League Deals:
Akinori Iwamura 3B
Greg Norton 1B/DH

Minor League Deals:
1B Hee Seop Choi
RP Steve Andrade
IF Jorge Velandia
OF Dustan Mohr
C Yamid Haad
RP Gary Glover
RP Al Reyes
OF Jason Grabowski
SP Doug Waechter



At least one of those signings were positive. But then again not signing anybody in this market was probably the right thing to do.

Thats my thinking. I would rather wait and let Niemann, Talbot, Sorrenstain, Hammel etc. come up then spend 11 mil on Gil Meche. Plus they are in talks with Scotty so thats gonna be expensive.




Well we still have Kazmirs rights for 3 more years, so the price will not get too far out of hand. Hopefully we could nail him down with a 5 or 6 year contract starting this year and at least take care of a few of his free agent years and hopefully of course our chance to be good years in 09, 10, and 11.

Devil Rays acquired infielder Brendan Harris from the Reds for a player to be named or cash.

A decent pickup for the bench. Whether there's room for Harris on Opening Day would seem to depend on what happens with B.J. Upton. If Upton is either starting in the outfield or back in Triple-A, Harris could be utilized as a backup at third and second. He'd then see time in place of the left-handed-hitting Akinori Iwamura against left-handers




I don't think rotoworld, Maddon, or DRO could ever make me understand why we need another middle infielder. :-°

And truthfully we have a good STARTING OF

with Delmon, CC, and Rocco
.... if we can keep them here at least

we need depth at pitching before anyting

Either a decent closer ((Hate McClung)) or some depth behind Kazmir ((I like fossum but not as a 2nd starter))

and I hate corcoran with a passion and he should be a releiver again
cause he can't go more than 5 innings without giving up mass amounts of runs

and in retrospect we should've kept lugo last year but at least we picked up iwamura

I like our offseason moves and if we play like we did early season last yearthen I think we can finish with 68 - 75 wins which at least is an upgrade from last year.
