According to Ken Rosenthal, the A's are about to sign Esteban Loaiza to a 3-year, $21 million deal.
This deal makes very little sense to me in isolation. It has to be part of some bigger plan.
I gotta run--I'll be back at 3pm PT and add some more comments.
Update #1: Dave Cameron at USS Mariner thinks the A's made a good deal.
Update #2: Blez likes it, Zachary doesn't (much).
Back again later. Busy day for me, sorry...
While searching for bargain-bin buys-a
A shiny thing caught Billy's eyes-a
But when he got home
He let out a moan:
"My God! I just bought a Loaiza!"
That said, my carefully thought out and highly reticulated curvilinear analysis of the multivariate emoluments coursing through this deal is: Gee, $21 million seems like a heck of a lot of money for three years of Esteban Loiaza.
Good luck. Nats fans will miss Loaiza.
