  • The Jays signed Francisco Cordero. I want it on the record that I wasn't thrilled. He had a 5.77 ERA, 2 saves, 3 blown, in 41 games, before Alex shipped him off to Houston.
  • Also I put up part one of an interview with Bruce Walton. Hmmm in the past 3 years I've interviewed Brian Butterfield, John Farrell, Bruce and Dwayne Murphy. There seems to be a pattern. Well, Murphy's still with the team, just not in the same role.
  • And we signed Brandon Morrow to a 3-year contract with an option for a 4th year.

There are little bits of baseball news. Mark McGwire's 'trainer' laughs about Mark's 'I only used steroids to recover from injuries' apology. Isn't saying 'I used to recover from injuries' kind of the equivalent to saying 'I only read Playboy for the interviews?'

And mark w reported that the Jays signed Tomo Ohka. Tomo didn't do a great job, going 2-5 with a 5.79 ERA in 10 starts.
