A’s sign Grant Balfour

It’s a 2/$8.1mil deal.

Good deal. How can the Yankees be so stoopid? Yes, Rafael Soriano is better than Grant Balfour, but not by much. You can argue that if you’re going to give up a pick go for the better guy, Soriano is not 3x better.

Buster Olney is suggesting that the Soriano deal was ownership driven and not baseball operations, aka Brian Cashman, driven. That’s good and bad. Good that apparently Cashman is not losing his mind. Bad because it means he’s seemingly losing the power he had gained in 2006.
