Wednesday Winter Meetings Recap
In case you missed it …
Boof Bonser signed a minor-league deal with the Mets.
George Sherrill signed with the Braves. Shrewd deal; he should bounce back and be a tough LOOGY / occasional setup man.
Dioner Navarro signed with the Dodgers. He was my first choice for the Mets, but, you can’t have everything in life.
Miguel Cairo signed a TWO-YEAR deal with the Reds. Seriously. Two years. I thought he was out of baseball since 2005, and here he is getting a two-year contract. Color me stunned and amazed.
Wil Nieves signed with the Brewers. No one cares.
Jack Cust signed with the Mariners. He will be their Designated Pinch Hitter, since the Adulterated League is still experimenting with that position for people who can’t stand in the field without endangering their physical well-being.
Paul Konerko signed a 3-year deal with the White Sox, mainly because he thought it would be cool to play 15 years with one team. I’m not kidding — he really said that. Noble, and proof that it’s not always all about the money (at least, not publicly).
