    You guys are awesome. I was trying to get Dbacks updates from various websites but then I just came and read this thread and I feel like I'm all caught up.

    Gettin close to spring training!

    Incredible how Boras plays these games... If the rumors were true that the Sox offered a 5 year deal, this means that Boras/JD are willing to take less years for more per season perhaps? I mean, Upton's new deal with the Angels comes to roughly $24 million per over 5 years. I know they wouldn't agree, but I wouldn't put JD over Upton. Not when Upton is a superior defensive player.

    Bruce signing for only $13M a year hurt Martinez’s asking price IMO. With the exception of BA, Bruce’s numbers were similar to JD’s.

    The #Dbacks sign veteran pitcher Kris Medlen to Minor league contract with spring training invite. He will earn $1.1 million if he returns to the big leagues and can opt out if not on 40-man roster by March 27

    The #Dbacks also sign reliever Antonio Bastardo to Minor league deal that will pay him $1.5 million if he makes big league team with $4 million worth of incentives if team closer

    If Antonio Bastardo is not on the 25-man roster by March 25, the #Dbacks must either put him on the roster or release him, if he makes official request

    I think every team tries to sign this guy just for the boost in jersey sales.
