1/21 MLB News: Andruw Jones Headlines Minor Deals

January 21st 2011 16:35
Brian Cashman needs to drive some sense into Hal Steinbrenner. For now, the stalwart GM is finishing his signing of former stars turned outcasts. Andruw Jones is taking a one year deal worth two million. He is 33 and has lost all the glory of his career after signing a deal with the Dodgers. 30 year old outfielders Scott Hairston was signed by the other New York team in a deal that doesn't make any sense.

David Price won the Warren Spahn Award. The award is given to the pitcher that has the best statistics. His incredible last start of the season propelled him over Jon Lester on the list. CC Sabathia was last year's deserved winner. D-Train, Johan, Pettitte, and the Big Unit are the other previous winners. Johnny Damon is 37, and the Rays want him. It makes no sense for the Rays to show interest in Damon when they are in the midst of what should be a rebuilding movement after losing pretty much their entire bullpen, a quality starter, their best player, and a few other pieces.

The Angels, Rangers, Rays, and Jays are all reportedly interested in acquiring washed up oldie Manny Ramirez. He wants to prove he has something left. I doubt it. The Angels are looking to get Vlad back for his final round. It would be a welcome send off. 33 year old Eric Chavez was once a great player with the A's and arguably the best chemistry guy and best fielder in baseball. Now he might be healthy- finally- and has interest from the Dodgers. The team is looking to complete their veteran movement.

There aren't many rumors or news, but it is the first rumors/news post I have made in a while because I have been so busy. I have barely been able to get these posts off. I hope to be on more to give you great and faithful readers more to enjoy. Thanks guys for understand. If you don't understand, I don't blame you at all. On a last note, Andruw Jones and Eric Chavez are eerily similar. Both are 33 year old legendary figureheads for their starting teams that have turned into poor players.

It's Bronx Time

I really hope my Blue Jays don't sign Manny. What a waste of money.

Nice post. Tim Byrdak just signed with the Mets too. The St. Louis Cardinals got a 3B in Nick Punto today. Oh and the Rays are targeting Mike Napoli which I guess they are not done signing people or trading anyone.
