    Betemit batted .285 with a .343 on-base percentage in 97 games with the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers last year.

    Looks like Tony was right...Betemit is the response to the Prince signing! LOL!

    Fair enough. Can't hurt I guess.

    What is the point in this signing?

    This tells me nothing going on with Atlanta, at least with Prado.

    When DD said we would get someone with an OBP of over .340, I wasn't expecting him.

    I think this is the final nail for Brian R... Sorry Cindy, it's sad

    Jones could still be going somewhere else...

    This is good news. One year deal looks good. Now, who gets removed from the 40 man roster?

    Or still to Atlanta, just no Prado, as SG qualified. Hopefully that's the case. I'd definitely rather have a couple A ball prospects along with a more legit guy like Minor/Delgado than get Prado.

    Is Betemit instantly our starting 2B? Does Andino slot into the UT role? Are we shopping Andino?

    What does this mean for Flaherty, Antonelli, and gang?

    I think Betemit is more of a 3B/1B type of guy. I wonder if Reynolds could be on the move???

    Betemit hasn't played a lot of second base in his career. I'd hate to see what a butcher he might be in that role.
