Cabrera Cashes In

The first free agent signings were submitted to the league office today, giving wood to the fire that is the Hot Stove League. Topping the early contracts was Miguel Cabrera, who received a five year, $475 contract from the Edwardsville Armada.

“We wanted to make sure we were able to attract some prime talent,” Armada owner David Reed said at the signing Monday.  “We think Miguel fits that criteria perfectly, and he should be a cornerstone for years to come.”

The Armada and the Conway Capitols were the busiest teams on the first day of the signing period.  They combined to sign eleven of the 19 players that were landed Monday.

The Capitols started a strong pitching staff by shelling out money to Roy Oswalt ($180 over three years) and Josh Beckett ($80 over two years).

“Pitching wins championships, in our opinion, and we think that these signings give us a leg up on a 2007 championship,” stated Capitols head man Mark Scott.

Bidding is expected to increase in the coming days, as another signing period will be coming Thursday.
