Trades, signings and what not..

As I jones for baseball and await the Super Bowl..I amuse myself with the trades and signings that have taken place so far this off-season. Some highlights:

Michael Cuddyer got a nice contract extension from the Twinkies. Three years and he now avoids arbitration. Dollar figure: $24 million and an option for 2011.

Troy Tulowitzki signed a six year extension with the Rockies with an option for 2014. Dollar value of the contract: $31 million

The White Sawx signed Octavio Dotel to a two year contract. Dollar value: $11-million. He is joining a bullpen that blew 23 saves, had a 19-25 record and an ERA of 5.49. Dotel will earn $5 million this year and $6 million in 2009.

Yadier Molina signed a nice four year extension with a club option for 2012 with the Cards thereby avoiding Arbi. Dollar value: $15.5 million.

Damn, a whole lotta guys signed contracts this past week..thereby avoiding arbi. Check it out if your bored and/or craving some baseball news.
