– The A’s have signed Coco Crisp to one-year deal that guarantees him $5.25 million, and also includes a team option for $5.75 million in 2011. The option has a $500,000 buyout adding to the $4.75 million he’ll get in 2010. I have him valued at about $6 million per year for the next two seasons, so this deal seems about right.
— The Angels have signed Fernando Rodney to a two-year $11 million deal. I have him valued at $5.5 million—half of what he got. Not a good deal for the Angels.
