The reliever market wasn't exactly breaking the way they hoped. They had to do something to address the pen. What would you have preferred? Given the circumstances I can't think of a lot more guys I'd rather have that were available, minus Soriano of course.
If you discount money i'd rather have alot of guys instead. Balfour, Crain, Wheeler, Rauch and Guerrier would of been better options imo. Bobby Jenks can strike guys out but he gets hit really hard plus he's a head case. I'll take because this team really needs another set-up guy, but they still need someone else for middle relief. Hopefully they'll still sign one of those guys above.
Crain and Guerrier got three year deals. I'm not crazy about giving these guys three years. Rauch can still be had (Balfour will cost a pick) but at what price?
