Dunn, Granderson Ink Big Pacts

The third signing day in United Rotisserie League history was not notable for the size of the contracts given or who was signed, but for the fact that, for the first time, every one in the group did sign a contract, instead of some receiving no bids.

Adam Dunn and Curtis Granderson led the way, as they were the only players that signed contracts that were over the $100 barrier. Dunn signed with the Arkansas Cardinals for $130 over 5 years, while Granderson went to the Atkins Alley Cats in a five year deal worth $125.

“Granderson is coming off helping his team into the World Series,” Atkins owner Charles Rector said Monday. “That kind of experience and leadership comes with a price tag. We expect to be reaping the benefits come October 2007.”

Cardinals owner Daniel Shoptaw had similar sentiments for Dunn. “Adam is going to be a big part of this team, as indicated by the fact that he has, at the moment, the top salary in Cardinal history. We expect that his power and batting eye will help push this team through the marathon that is the season.”

Other notables that signed included shortstops Bobby Crosby (Brewville Style) and Edgar Renteria (Cardinals) and legendary pitcher Roger Clemens (Style), who has yet to indicate whether he will return for 2007 or not.
