Odds And Ends: Johnson, Bloomquist, Smoltz

Links for Saturday:

  • We knew Dan Johnson was heading to Japan, but now it's official. He'll play for the Yokohama BayStars and earn $1.5MM in 2009.
  • Rob Neyer writes that the Willie Bloomquist signing caps an offseason that's cost the Royals a lot and left them with very little top talent.
  • Losing John Smoltz hasn't been easy for the Braves.
  • MLB.com's Tom Singer takes a look at some of the remaining free agent pitchers.
  • Buster Olney creates a team of the remaining free agents and it doesn't look bad. He also has a fun idea for teams who want to sign a Type A free agent without losing their top pick.
  • Jim Johnson seems likely to start the season in the bullpen for Baltimore.
  • Peter Schmuck writes that at a low enough price it would make sense for the O's to gamble on some pitchers to fill out the rotation.
  • Larry LaRue wonders whether the Mariners will hold onto Jamie Burke; Burke does too.
