What’s That About the Cold Stove?
Quick update to the last post that deserves a post of its own: the Orioles have now also added Garrett Atkins.
I love the coincidence that the day after we discuss whether or not they’re moving too slowly they go out and fill two needs.
As for the Atkins signing, I like it. I’m not even sure I care about the money, which is as yet undisclosed. He’s here to put up credible performance while we wait for Josh Bell and his track record suggests he can do that. Assuming we don’t give too much weight to his 2009 numbers.
As of now, we’ve got a better team on paper than we had entering the 2009 season. And I’m guessing there’s one or two more moves on the horizon. Good times.
