Orioles Bring Back Utility Infielder

It's been a year since Chris Gomez last put on a hat with a bird on it. Evidently that was too long for his liking. The utility infielder inked a minor league deal with Baltimore Friday, according to Jeff Zrebiac of the Baltimore Sun. Gomez will again be expected to...

Rough Winter For the NL East

Judging by Chico's post over at NJ last night, we are starting to get a clear answer to what I believed was the key question in the aftermath of the Teixeira pursuit: What was going to happen to that money the Nationals were prepared to hand to Teixeira? Apparently, it's...

Orioles Sign First Japanese Player

Took me a day to get this up because of an airport-to-airport shuffle, but the Orioles officially signed their first Japanese starting pitcher yesterday, inking Koji Uehara to a two-year deal worth $10 million, though the deal also has another $6 million in reachable incentives. Adding Uehara is a start,...

A Bronx-Centric Wednesday: WBC, Salary Cap, Pettitte, Swisher

1.No more about the Mark Teixeira negotiations, I promise. But it's worth mentioning here that Teixeira said yesterday he is passing on the World Baseball Classic this time around because, ahem, he needed to "learn my teammates, learn my coaches." New Yankees pitchers C.C. Sabathia and A.J. Burnett said versions...

Just Get It Dunn

Dave's got the Burrell signing pegged perfectly. This deal, at a sensible price, means that the Nationals can afford Adam Dunn. And, if necessary, they can probaby still pay the "Loser's Premium" that a 102-loss team often has to shell out to grab a free agent. The Rays may have...

Tuesday Triple Play

1. So there you have it: a new market standard has been established for the remaining plethora of hulking, bad-glove, big-bat corner types in this recession-wary, post-New Year's, post-Yankees-spending-spree marketplace. And you have to conclude it looks good for teams like the Nationals. If Pat Burrell is only worth $16...

Twins Owner Pohlad Passes Away

A sad note to briefly pass along: Longtime Twins owner Carl Pohlad died Monday at his home in Edina, Minn. He was 93. According to Neal St. Anthony of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Pohlad was most recently ranked the 102nd richest man in America, with a total wealth of around a...

A Big Day for B's: Bradley and Burrell Sign

Time to re-jigger those AL East rankings: the Rays are adding another bat, and it's a pretty big one. After weighing his options, outfielder Pat Burrell, late of the defending champion Phillies, signed a two-year, $16 million deal with the team he helped beat in the World Series, the Rays,...

Daniel Cabrera Is Designed To Break Your Heart

Trying to get back up to speed after two weeks of vacation... Let's start with a look at the latest addition to the Nationals' starting rotation. I covered the start of Cabrera's career as our Orioles beat writer, and saw him at his best and his worst. With that size...
