- The Cardinals inked Josh Phelps to a minor league deal that could be worth up to $1MM. I always liked Phelps; he’s a more than capable bench guy.
- The Red Sox bit the bullet and brought Doug Mirabelli back for another round. Tony Massarotti notes that the Red Sox may sign Jason Varitek to an extension this spring worth upward of $10MM annually. I still like the idea of going after Kenji Johjima next winter.
- RotoAuthority ranks the shortstops for fantasy leagues, hot off the press.
