    Cubs sign Mike Stanton

    Even the Reds couldn't kill his career apparently.


    from rotoworld:
    Cubs signed LHP Mike Stanton, INF Luis Rivas, OF Jason Dubois and OF So Taguchi to minor league contracts and invited them to spring training.

    The Reds ate $3.5 million to dump Stanton last year, and the 41-year-old left-handed ended up sitting out the season. Now he's back to try to add to his 1,178 major league appearances. It's quite unlikely that he'll make the Cubs.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'd have thought they'd sign him to at least a 2 year deal.

    5 or 6 years or go, three of those guys would have cost a fair amount of money together...
