    No love for Vlad?

    He batted. 290 last year with about 70 rbi's. That's a whole lot better than a whole lot of players. Why hasent anyone signed him?

    I think his defense is such a liability that he could only DH. Not sure why an AL team hasn't picked him up though. Maybe he wants more $$$ than teams are offering.

    Vlad should have taken the Yanks offer but was holding out for more bucks
    Honestly, not a lot of power, tons of dp's, defensive liability

    He's definitely in the twilight of his career, if his career isn't already over. The man has been a great player, but there's really not that much use for him right now. As has been mentioned people aren't going to pay a premium price for a guy that can't field and can't hit for much power anymore.

    I think he could still help a team though from the DH spot if he would be willing to take a small paycheque.
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    and dont forget Johnny Gomes!!!!!
    Personally if the reds LFers keep sucking i'd be fine with giving him a shot there and bringing in heisey as a defensive replacement in later innings.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Vladimir Guerrero has agreed to a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, a potential veteran boost for a lagging lineup.
