    Anything else think Capuano to the Sox is good for the O's?

    If it happens, I think we'll have a field day with him and his 88mph luke-warmer.

    Left Hander that doesn't throw hard? Just the type of pitchers the Orioles seem to struggle with. He'll make the Orioles look bad a time or two in 2014. Didn't Joe Saunders pitch a shutout against the Orioles last year?

    He is good depth for Boston. Him not going to Seattle also increases the odds of Seattle trying to sign Santana, although it looks like Toronto may be out on Santana anyway.

    He could be decent for them. I'd rather them sign him than Ervin Santana though, for sure.

    He's perfect for Boston. From Massachusetts, and can start in the bullpen and step into the rotation if/when someone gets hurt or is ineffective.

    Meh. He'd compete with Felix Doubront for the #5 starter.

    Sounds like it happened:

    It's a one-year, $2.25 million deal, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

    Dave Cameron likes the deal, KLaw doesn't.

    I think it is a smart deal. I love depth. Heck, I would sign Saunders if price was right. He isn't as bad as last year.

    Based on Capuano ($2.25MM) and Maholm ($1.5MM), Saunders should have to take a MiL deal. I'd be fine with that if he was willing to start the year at AAA or in the bullpen.

    His fastball is a little better than I thought it was. Nice little 92 MPH Matusz-esque fastball. Sounds just like a guy that will own the crap out of us.

    Unless I read the Fangraphs page wrong, his fastball averages in the 88-89 range.
