    The A's have agreed to sign Coco Crisp to a two-year, $14MM deal that includes a club option for 2014, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney. The news ends 24 hours of rumors and speculation about Crisp's destination. He decided to return to Oakland yesterday, despite interest from the Orioles, Cubs, Cardinals and many other teams.

    My Gawd, what an awful deal.

    Unless he has to triple what the offer should be to get anybody to sign with Oakland, that is.

    At least he kept Jocketty from making another huge mistake.

    Re: Reds rumors

    Multiple teams remain interested in signing free agent closer Francisco Cordero and agent Bean Stringfellow is discussing multiyear deals at least one of them, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. The Reds remain interested, but Cincinnati GM Walt Jocketty says he isn’t prepared to guarantee more than one year."We're looking at one year or one year with an option," Jocketty said. "That's all it could be, right now."
    Reds are offering one year. Coco, please take the multiyear deal.

    However, his average fastball velocity dropped to 93 mph and peripheral stats such as xFIP (4.14) and SIERA (3.91) suggest his 2.45 ERA may be artificially low.
    I don't want this to be verified at the Reds' expense.

    Since Oakland is in (continuous) rebuild mode why would they waste 14 million on Coco Crisp? Save your money and instead of selling Jai Miller to the Orioles, stick him out in CF and see if you have anything there.

    Re: Reds rumors

    One MLB executive suggested to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that the Cubs and Blue Jays may prefer to pass on Prince Fielder, since Joey Votto projects to hit free agency two years from now when both Chicago and Toronto could have stronger teams.
    Ouch.

Seattle again could be looking to make a splash; Texas would be interested; Youkilis and Ortiz will be gone from BoSox; Konerko will be gone from ChiSox; Washington might be the in on Fielder but if they miss they will be in the position to go after him because Harper will be up and all their arms will be primed! If he doesn't sign an extension by the all-star break there is no chance he stays.

    I like the trades we have made to try and win now but I would have preferred to trade Votto this offseason and fill other holes with his return and financial ability. I think we still could have won the division without Votto but I am glad to see they are being proactive with him!

    According to writer Kevin Goldstein, the Reds have signed P.J. Phillps - younger brother of Brandon.P.J. Phillips (.254/.297/.389) has never made it past A-ball in six seasons in the Angels farm system. He was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2005 MLB June Amateur Draft.

    Maybe that is part of BP's extension!

    Re: Reds rumors

    The Reds are looking for depth in left field, and though they maintain some interest in Cody Ross, they haven't had discussions about Johnny Damon, according to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. GM Walt Jocketty acknowledged interest in Rick Ankiel and Ryan Ludwick, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. The agent for Kosuke Fukudome called the team as well.

    Left fielder Chris Heisey hit 18 homers and posted a .797 OPS in 2011, but the Reds have just four outfielders on their 40-man roster and will likely add depth before Opening Day. They traded outfield options Yonder Alonso and Dave Sappelt in recent deals for pitching.

    The Mets and Nationals have been linked to Ankiel this offseason, while the Athletics and Giants have been linked to Ludwick. This is the first we've heard of Fukudome since the regular season ended.

    It's somewhat slim consolation, but here are their wOBAs vs. Left-Handed pitching over the last two years:

    Ludwick: .297
    Ankiel: .247
    Heisey: .245

    As long as they're looking at Ludwick as a potential platoon partner for Heisey, he might not be a disastrous acquisition.

    I like the idea of adding Ludwig. Could put up some nice numbers in GABP and would add a veteran presence to our young outfielders. IMO he has far more potential upside that Cody Ross or Ankiel.
