Its nice to have the cash, but you gotta get the players to sign. I am still holding out hope for Beltre.
Here's an interesting take on the Tigers and Renteria situation - also updating the bullpen situation. Apparantly Urbina is going to be our setup man and will report to ST on time (still a touchy situation). Otherwise Rodney is fully recovered and pitching lights out in winterball.
