Krivsky Avoids Making A Bad Move

Before Wayne Krivsky had a chance to make the horrible mistake of re-signing Royce Clayton, the Blue Jays beat him to the punch. Marc says:

Ken Rosenthal reports the Blue Jays have agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with Royce Clayton.

This is the exact transcript of the conversation that ensued here in the office between me and the Crack Technical Staff regarding this story:

CTS: Clayton signed!
RHM: With whom?
CTS: The Blue Jays. $1.5 million.
RHM: Royce Clayton commands $1.5 million?
CTS: Sure. In Canada.

Cardinals Actually Do Something

As in in direct response to me making fun of their inactivity and certainly not because they were just wrapping up the details, the Cardinals have finally gone and done something:

Adam Kennedy signed a three-year deal on Tuesday to play second base for St. Louis, reuniting him with Eckstein, his old Anaheim teammate.
The Cardinals also filled another of the openings on their roster on Tuesday, signing right-hander Kip Wells to take one of the vacant spots in their starting rotation. Wells, 29, was most recently a Texas Ranger but is best known to the Cardinals from four-plus years pitching for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Wells, a previously good starter down on his luck, going for $4 million. What a shame that he can't catch, or we'd be looking at him in a Cincinnati uniform.
