* ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that before third baseman Mike Lowell agreed on a 3-year/$37.5M deal with the Boston Red Sox, the Philadelphia Phillies offered Lowell a 4-year deal worth $50M. Looks like Lowell really did want to come back to Boston, as he made it clear he wanted 4-years and than turned down Philadelphia’s offer. He also lost a good $12.5M in the process.
* When asked about the 4-year $60M offer the Colorado Rockies reportedly made to soon-to-be National League MVP, Matt Holliday responded by making it clear that he would like a contract much longer than 4-years. He feels that he is worth a long term investment from the Colorado Rockies, and who’s going to argue against it?
* The St. Louis Cardinals have signed veteran catcher Jason LaRue, who spent 2007 with the Kansas City Royals, to a 1-year deal worth $850,000. LaRue really didn’t do too much in Kansas City.
* Free-Agent Torii Hunter is set to dine with the Texas Rangers owner and general manager tonight, possibly talking about a long-term deal in place to fill the Ranger’s CF vacancy. Most believe Texas is the front runner for Hunter.
* Don’t be surprised if new Angel Jon Garland does much better for the Halos, as their ballpark suits his pitching style very nicely. His 4.24 ERA in 2007 wasn’t too impressive, but I would be willing to put a wager on an ERA under 4 for next year. (
