    Not sure how good Fukudome is, but he's got a great OBP in Japan. If he can continue to get on base, he'll be a big addition to a Cubs lineup that needs a big OBP guy.

    Default Tejada to the Stros

    Tejada to Houston for 5 players:

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/7556464

    The Orioles have completed their first major off-season move, trading shortstop Miguel Tejada to the Astros, according to major-league sources.

    Tejada, signed through 2009 at $12 million per season, is expected to play shortstop for Houston. The move means that the Astros are unlikely to offer their incumbent shortstop, Adam Everett, a contract by Wednesday's midnight deadline to tender proposals. Ty Wigginton will play third.

    In return, the Orioles will receive outfielder Luke Scott, right-hander Matt Albers and three prospects pitchers Troy Patton and Dennis Sarfate and third baseman Michael Costanzo.

    Tejada, 31, hit .296 last year with 18 HRs and 81 RBIs, but was limited to only 133 games due to a wrist injury he suffered in June. Tejada's trip to the DL ended his consecutive games played streak at 1,152. In the three previous seasons, Tejada never hit lower than .304 and averaged 28 HRs and 116 RBIs.

    Scott, 29, hit .255 last year with 18 HRs and 64 RBIs in just his third season in the majors. Albers, who will turn 25 in January, went 4-11 last season with a 5.86 ERA.

    Default Rowand to SF

    Rowand to the Gyros on a 5 year deal. Another questionable signing, SF seems to be regressing each year and this reactionary deal (after losing out on Fukudome and Andruw) will probably come back to haunt them as well.

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...SURO.DTL&tsp=1

    EDIT: Holy crap, word is it's around the same dollar level as Torii Hunter's deal. If so, Sabean has finally lost his mind. If they are paying Zito and Rowand $35 million combined per year for the next 5 years, the Giants should get used to last place in the NL West.

    Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although the value of Rowand's contract was believed to have approached the five-year, $90 million package that Torii Hunter, another free-agent center fielder, recently received from the Los Angeles Angels.

    LOL! If its around Torii's amount, then the pain of the Pierre deal will hurt a less.

    ESPN reporting it's 5 years for $60 million, so not quite as bad a deal as Hunter's. But still, 5 years is an awful lot for a 30 year center coming off what's clearly a career year in a great hitters' park. He's only topped 25 HRs and 70 RBIs once, and he probably won't again playing in that stadium. His defense is above average, but like Mathews Jr. his flashy plays have built up his rep beyond his actual performance.

    His main value to Giants fans is that they will now be able to keep both Cain and Lincecum, rather than trading one of them for a CF.

    The only thing scarier would be if Juan Pierre was in that lineup instead of Rowand.
