I like Jon Lieber; three years, $21 million — basically a Jaret Wright deal — seems high. At any event, if Lieber got $7 million a year, the Yankees giving the same to Wright doesn’t look like such a reach. It’s a good one-year signing for the Phillies, but in three years it could look pretty bad.
That makes more sense. Also, the Marlins have apparently signed Antonio Alfonseca to a two-year deal. I would have liked to bring back Alfonseca, but the reality of the baseball setup is that you can’t afford to re-sign guys like that.
