With the signing of Xavier Nady almost done, we probably have to face up to the fact that there won't mathematically be any room on the team for one of the most popular Chicago Cubs in recent memory, our Reed Johnson.
When I heard the Nady news, I sent out an email asking for insight on the guy, but Sutter sent one back saying simply, "Say goodbye to Reed."
So that's the emotional news for the day.
The other news you just have to scratch your head about is Ben Sheets getting TEN MILLION dollars (plus performance bonuses) for one year of pitching for the A's based on an "impressive" workout he had with a number of teams watching. The last time I saw him he was pretty impressive too, then he went on the dl for 2 years.
Anyway, here's a retrospective on Reed, and I hope he lands somewhere and kicks ass.
