For those of you who don't know yet, Byrnes signed a deal with the D-Backs. The deal is for one year and $2.25 million dollars.
The whole story is here.
In un-A's-related deals, it seems the Pirates are trying to improve. They signed FA Joe Randa from the Pads to a one year, four million deal. It makes you wonder why he would want a 36 year old....I guess that's why it's just for one year.
On the A's Official site, there is an interesting article about Dave Parker, and his Hall chances this year. He's been on the ballot 10 times before and has only gotten 12.6%, rather than the required 75%. The link is here. Parker, apparently, believes he should be in the Hall. Does anybody know anything about his numbers?
It's a very slow day in baseball news...how much longer until Spring Training? I miss baseball!!!
