Iglesias signs with O's

Recommended Posts

Dang, didn't think Elias would spend that much on a free agent.   This pretty much sends Richie Martin to AAA for the year right?

Nice to have a professional in the middle infield at least. Martin to AAA for now, but he'll get a call at some point during the year I'm sure.

I like this and hope it turns out even better than expected.

Wow, spending more than the minimum on the 30 year old.  (If we had signed him 2 days ago we would have signed a 29 year old).

While I thought Martin played a decent SS, I consider Iglesias a defensive upgrade, so that will be good for the pitchers.    Decent stopgap signing even if not really exciting or significant in the long term.     

It will be interesting to see whether Richie Martin gets any substantial major league time this year.

It is curious that the Orioles are pinching pennies in so many ways, yet were willing to spend this much on a position that was not an extreme need.
