I usually add my two cents to the morning’s guest post around this time, but there are a couple of newsworthy things going on this afternoon.
1. Major League Baseball has announced the tentative game times for the 2010 season. You can find a printable version of the Yankees schedule right here. There are still a few TBA’s here and there, but for the most part, the times are set.
2. Xavier Nady has signed with the Chicago Cubs, taking one right-handed outfield option off the free agent market. As of right now, I haven’t seen anything on contract details.
UPDATE, 12:59 p.m.: Looks like Ben Sheets has signed with Oakland, which means the A’s are no longer likley to go after Johnny Damon. It had been reported that Damon was Oakland’s Plan B if a deal couldn’t be reached with Sheets.
UPDATE, 1:58 p.m.: Nady got $3.3 million plus heavy $2 mil in incentives. Probably a little more than the Yankees would have wanted to spend. Sheets is one-year, $10 million, almost certainly more than the Yankees would have wanted to spend.
