How the NL West was won 2009

According to Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times, the Dodgers signed pitcher Claudio Vargas to an incentive-laden, one-year deal. He'll earn $400K and has $1.4MM in incentives.

Vargas, 30, spent 2008 in the Mets' organization. He pitched 85.3 innings across various levels, dealing with elbow pain at one point. He'd been released by the Brewers in March.


:-b Gotta love me some Dodgers ;-)

Old Style is a bargain beer, Keystone Light is a cheap beer that leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

Claudio is like Keystone Light. !+)

Living in Milwaukee, I can say with confidence that Old Style is NOT a bargain beer as "bargain" often indicates that its a steal. Also being in Milwaukee I am familar with Vargas and can say that he is more like Miller High Life than either Keystone or Old Style....

He is productive and a steal at that price....

Perfect, a pitcher of champagne on a beer budget. ;-)
