Diamondbacks Sign Catcher Chris Snyder For 3 Years/$14.5M

The Diamondbacks signed starting catcher Chris Snyder for 3 years/$14.5M; it's kind of an odd deal inasmuch as backup Miguel Montero has half his innings but is three years younger and is doing appreciably better than Snyder at the same age. I guess the thinking is that Snyder can be had fairly cheaply, and if Montero surpasses him offensively (his defensive game, from memory, wasn't all that just yet), he'll be arbitration eligible longer.

Reaction at AZ Snake Pit seems to be generally positive, which confirms my view of this deal.
