Season 23 – Free Agency Part Two

I see my predictions that Les Buchanan would sign soon were fairly accurate as he signed with Hartford the next cycle. Hartford also signed Lonny Allen and Benji Diaz to one year deals.

Still no Torrealba sighting, but there is no more “bidding” to be done, as multiple teams have max contracts out to him, so it’s all a crapshoot at this point.

Surprisingly New York has yet to make a free agent signing this year as he’s about $8 or $9 million from his cap right now.

After getting called out on the world chat, Chase Fassero signs the next cycle for Colorado.

Julio Sosa will call Baltimore home for the next three years.

I picked up Albert Sojo on a two year deal to cover my long relief role, and provide some extra starting pitcher depth if a guy in my rotation goes down. I probably could’ve waited a couple more cycles and got him cheaper, though I did have him as the 8th best SP this FA cycle.

Former Timberwolf Brant Wulf moves to Little Rock after a very productive season in Richmond.

Outside of Torrealba there aren’t too many “impact” bats left out there. Don’t get me wrong, there are some very productive guys left, but nothing game changing.

As far as pitchers go, Doug Stern, and Sal Veres are probably the best two left.

Also I might start a “Tanking Watch” section to the blog as Kansas City hasn’t signed a player other than to a minor league deal at this point.
