First- Since there is news to blog about look for Red Sox, Yankees, Rays to continue when there is no news to blog about or during spring training.
Second- Milton Bradley signed with the Cubs pending a physical on a three year $30 million dollar deal. Look for more on that tomorrow.
Third- Jason Giambi is expected to go to the Oakland A’s.
Forth- Twins owner Carl Pohald died today.
WOW! Is the hot stove heating up two all-star players are close to signing while one signed today. Pat Burrell signed with the Tampa Bay Rays today on a two year $16 million dollar contract. Pat the Bat won the World Series with the Phillies beating the team he signed with today the Tampa Bay Rays. Burrell is 32 and the right handed slugger the Rays have needed forever. Burrell is a veteran who can help the Rays this year. Burrell will probably be the DH with the A’s. Burrell walks a lot while he hit 33 home runs, had a .250 batting average and drove in 86 RBI’s. The move by the Rays kind of keeps them up with the Yankees who signed C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, and Mark Teixeira along with former Red Sox Kevin Cash. Burrell will help the Rays who know have to play with people watching them. Even with the signing Tampa Bay will not compete, because Longoria and others will have to make changes, which will give the Rays a not so good first month, half, or who knows it could take a week for Longoria to make his changes. Now that the Hot Stove is heating up maybe Varitex will sign with Boston soon.
