No fear, I have coverage coming on both of the Diamondbacks' huge deals, but for now this post analyzing the considerably "minor" deals from the day will have to suffice.
- Twins sign Mike Lamb to a two year deal with a 2010 option.
- Padres sign Glendon Rusch to a minor league deal.
- Rockies sign Luis Vizcaino signs with the Rockies, 2 years / 7 million
Not a huge deal, but if a pitcher is going to find success in the major leagues it's likely going to be in San Diego - combing Bud Black with PETCO Park has stronger effects than any drug or workout program ever could. Also I hope Rusch can have a full comeback after missing last season due to blood clots - scary stuff.
Finally Luis Vizcaino is a Rock - isn't it funny that the Rockies and Yankees essentially swapped set-up men? No? Well in that case I think the Rockies got the better end of the trade-off, Vizcaino's been solid five of the past six years and usually those type of trends won't just end.
