Just a few links on a Monday night

A handful of links and notes from another fairly quiet day in baseball.

The Rockies have locked up Carlos Gonzalez with a seven-year extension. That’s pending a physical. Colorado is clearly ready to roll with Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki for the better part of the next decade.

• The Rangers made their Brandon Webb and Arthur Rhodes signings official today. They’re also known to be chasing Adrian Beltre, but T.R. Sullivan says team officials “weren’t too optimistic” a deal would be done with the third baseman.

The Blue Jays have signed Chad Cordero. That’s a minor league deal for the former Nationals closer who’s gone through serious injury problems.

• Turns out Alfredo Simon really was involved in a shooting this weekend, but he says it was an accident. Simon turned himself in today, and his attorneys’ fees will be paid by Miguel Tejada.

The Mets have signed Chris Capuano and Taylor Buchholz for their pitching staff, but those additions don’t necessarily take them out of the mix for Chris Young or Jeff Francis.
