Some updates from the now booming free agent market.
Everyone else is contradicting what I was told about Clement and Philadelphia last night. Not sure what happened there, honestly. Most reports have the Phillies on the verge of signing Jon Lieber to a 3 year deal. They could theoretically afford Clement and Lieber, though that may not be in the plans.
Al Leiter went to Florida.
Richard Hidalgo looks like he’s going to be the bargain of the offseason so far. Texas is the frontrunner for his services, and he’s going to take a 1 year deal to reestablish market value. He’ll be a nice pickup for whoever snags him, and the M’s really would do well to get in on him now.
The White Sox signed Dustin Hermanson to a two year contract. Just Kenny Williams being Kenny Williams.
Magglio Ordonez is so healthy that Scott Boras is canceling his workout. Now you just get to take his word for it. Yay!
Jeff Sullivan goes all graphic on the market so far.
