Sports: Hot Stove Update

Nomar has made his decision. He will be playing for the LA Dodgers this year. As he signed a 1 year $6 million contract which could be worth as much as $8 million with incentives. This was the team I thought he would go to all along, even before he signed with the Cubs last year. Nomar always said he wanted to play on the west coast and you don't get much more west coast than Los Angelos. I wish Nomar the best and feel sorry for the Dodgers who over paid for Nomar's services.

The Seattle Mariners are close to signing Jared Washburn to a 4 year deal. I'm glad the Mariners are trying to become competitive again. I like seeing those 4 teams in the AL West division beat each other up giving the Redsox the best chance to make the play offs in the Wild Card. Not quite sure if Washburn is worth the reportedly 10 mil a year he is being offered from the Mariners, but every pitcher is being over paid this year.

Rudy Seanez? Didn't we just have him a few years ago? And didn't he suck when we had him? Now the Redsox are accept salary arbitration from the Redsox. Maybe we can have our starting short stop in this guy? He played good defense for the most part, outside that error in the ALDS against the White Sox. I like the fact that we are keeping him as he is a solid player.
