    Adams makes so much more sense in the AL where he can also DH.

    Yeah but if you see how much Time Zimmerman has missed the last 4 years you’d see where some playing time could happen for him. He’s lucky to have this deal fall in his lap.

    I hope he’s worked on keeping the Lbs off and working in the OF a bit more. He did have to learn a bit on the fly last year. Not a bad score for about 250-300 PA

    Duke has a good shot at making good on that contract. If we didn’t have Lyons and Cecil, I would have liked to bring Duke back.

    Duke is excellent value at $2 million. Even with Lyons/Sheriff/Cecil I would have been thrilled with that risk. Oh well.

    Man, a reserve firstbaseman/pinch hitter can get over $4M a year (Adams). Being an MLB player, which of course is a very exclusive club, is a terrific career path. You can be one of the lower-level employees, and still make more in one year than most do in a lifetime, not to mention great benefits.

    At a SABR get-together early last season I told Rockies’ GM Jeff Bridich I thought Adams would be a perfect “Rockie-type” player. He would love hitting here. But Bridich said that although his name came up a couple of times in talks between the two teams, they never got close to making a deal.

    Mike. I know you meant Adams, not Lynn as a perfect “Rockie-type” player. Too bad TCN won’t let you edit your post. I think Adams is a good fit for just about any team that doesn’t have a roster full of inflated egos. I always liked Matt Adams and was happy to see him sign. He’s pretty much at a point now where his security is assured although he might be one of these players that’s around for a long time.

    The plum of the Rasmus trade has more than nine lives (12 teams in 18 years) and has survived in MLB longer than Colby.

    The Nationals have re-signed Edwin Jackson, per @ESQAgency. He’ll get $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster and can make another $1.4 million in incentives.

    Salas signed a minor league deal (Az I think). I would like to have had him on a minors deal.

    Depending on how he felt about having been traded away, he might not want to come back.

    Or Salas just as likely could be appreciative of the team that gave him his shot at the major leagues.

    LOL, Salad is awful. Cards have pitchers in AA ball that are far superior to him.
