Jon Lieber got signed by the Cubs. Does this mean Ryan Dempster goes back to the bullpen?

Pena thrilled to get 3 years, $24.125-million

I wonder what their plan becomes for the 2008 Draft, as in do they take the best player available still in Pedro Alvarez, who should be MLB ready by 2009, or do they take another dominant lefty in Brian Matsuz?

In my opinion Carlos Pena isn't nearly enough of a sure bet for TB's future to be able and pass up on Alvarez.

I agree with this completely. Very hard to pass up on Alvarez.

January 22, 2008

BOSTON (AP) -- The World Series champion Boston Red Sox added insurance for their bullpen Tuesday, agreeing to minor league contracts with right-handers Dan Kolb and Dan Miceli.

Kolb would get $650,000 if he's added to the major league roster and $78,000 in the minors. Miceli would make $650,000 in the big leagues and $84,000 in the minors.

ADVERTISEMENT
Both pitchers can earn performance bonuses as well.

Kolb was an NL All-Star with Milwaukee in 2004, when he saved 39 games with a 2.98 ERA. He appeared in three games last year for Pittsburgh, pitching three innings.

Miceli's last stint in the majors was with Tampa Bay in 2006, when he went 1-2 with a 3.94 ERA and four saves in 33 relief appearances. He is 43-52 with a 4.48 ERA and 39 saves in 14 major league seasons.

Cincinnati Reds sign Jeremy Affeldt to a one year deal.

Pencil Affeldt in as the Red's number three pitcher after Harang and Arroyo. He will be the only lefty in their rotation at the beginning of the season. The job seems to be his; he will have to pitch himself out of the rotation at this point.

I think that this was a good gamble by the Reds. Affeldt has always had a pretty decent arm. It will be interesting to see if he can be effective as a starter.

3B Pedro Feliz signs with Philly. Predicted this one and is seems like a very logical siging considering Philly's other options.

The Jays signed Rod Barajas as a backup last week for 1.2M a year after he turned down their 2 year/5.5M offer last offseason, if anybody cares.
