Seeing The World Through DeRosa Colored Glasses?
by Derek Smart
In a move sure to elicit more bad puns through 2009 than any sentient being should have to endure, the Cubs have signed Mark DeRosa to a three-year deal worth $13M, and will use him as the team's every day second baseman.
More on this later, but my initial reaction is a combination of relief that Ronnie Cedeno will not be cracking the starting lineup on a regular basis, and "You're paying how much for what, now?"
Perhaps as the evening wears on I'll be more sanguine about the thing, but my in-the-moment-no-information-thought is that it appears Ryan Theriot just got screwed.
