Marlins sign Mujica (800k) and Nunez (3.5m) to 1 year contracts.

Nunez becomes the highest paid reliever in the Jeffery Loria era, and the highest paid reliever since Armando Benitez in 2004.

The Marlins are actually spending. I like it. And contrary to popular belief, dealing Uggla was because of the absurdity of his askings (5 yr 70 mil). Something a 30 year old baseball player simply aint worth.

And just in that Anibal Sanchez (3.7m) and Clay Hensley(1.4m) have signed 1 year deals.

Projected payroll of 48m is now up to 58m. Yay spending.

While those 1 year deals scare me, I have faith, or at least I know they cant be that stupid, to go into a new ballpark with an awful team.

Jeez, I really felt bad for that guy over the course of the last couple of years. I don't know what to think about this at all.

His 2004 season alone:

47 Saves
1.29 ERA
0.82 WHIP
.152 BAA

Definition of lights out, game over. Armando at his finest.

the only thing that matters when measuring how good or bad a closer was is how he performs in big spots. armando was one of the worst big game pitchers of the last 20 years. his many 40+ save seasons are meaningless.

i despise him with the fire of a thousand suns.

I think the closer position is overrated as a whole. MRP in high pressure situations is just as valuable. In fact, saves are overrated.

The point is, Armando performed well. And the beauty about it was that his woes weren't our [the Marlins] problems afterwards other than a handful of games.

Brian Cashman admitted on Wednesday that he was against the signing of reliever Rafael Soriano but was overruled by Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner.
Cashman made his remarks at Wednesday's Yankee Stadium press conference to introduce Soriano, who signed a contract that could be worth $35 million over three years.
"It's not my team," Cashman said. "I don't own it. They do . . . I'm a big boy."
