Reds grant six-year extension to Homer Bailey - ESPN

$105 million for six years with one option year. Even though he has two no-hitters, I scratch my head over this.

MLB drops lawsuit against Biogenesis - CNN

Not unexpected since MLB said they'd drop the suit if Tony Bosch cooperated with the investigation.

Orioles sign Ubaldo Jimenez - Camden Chat

4 years, $50 million. This is the longest and largest contract the team has ever given to a free-agent pitcher.

Bryan Stow attackers are sentenced - KTLA

This may be a small victory for the Stow family, but these guys got off easy. Marvin Norwood got four years, Louis Sanchez got eight years. They deserved much more.

Red Sox sign Chris Capuano - Boston Herald

Jesus Montero arrives at Spring Training overweight - BLS

He hit .208 in 29 games before being demoted. The PED suspension came next, and now he shows up 40 pounds over his target weight. Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik said of Montero:

"We are disappointed in how he came in physically...I have zero expectations for Jesus Montero. Any expectations I had are gone."

Giants feel Tim Hudson's influence - CSN Bay Area

It's nice to know Tim is back to doing what he does best, even if it's in a Giants uniform. We still miss you, Huddy!
