Green Gone To Arizona
ESPN, fix your fargin' website.
Update: on dodgers.com, $32M/3 years, with a fourth-year option for $8M. Also, the two throw-in pitching prospects have been named:
- Dan Muegge, a former University of Texas pitcher. The highest level he's played at is single-A, with a 14-4 record, and a 3.12 ERA. His peripherals, 6.12 K/9 and 2.48 K/BB, show a pitcher with mediocre stuff. The Midwest League is generally a pitcher's league, and South Bend is the third-best pitcher's park in the league.
- Beltran Perez, a name that sounds like he's trying to get into the majors by adopting the last name of as many free agents as possible, had a 4.41 ERA with a 2-6 record in AA El Paso, in the best hitter's park in a hitter's league. As with Muegge, a 6.66 K/9 and and 1.66 K/BB don't speak highly of his abilities at this level.
Rumour has it that the Dodger front office is in turmoil with no clear direction and a severe lack of communication.
Who has the reins????
AHB -- I submit: if they had, how would you know?
