First submitted in November, H. Res. 816 passed the House yesterday. The Rockies officially have the congratulations of the House for their run to the World Series. And who says nothing ever gets done in Washington, D.C.?
Last seen trying to make the Rockies in 2007, Javy Lopez signed a minor league deal with the Braves and received an invitation to spring training. At least this time he knows he'll be competing for a bench role.
The Dodgers brought in Gary Bennett to backup Russell Martin. Being named in the Mitchell Report isn't going to ruin your career, but as as Andrew mentions in that entry, Bennett will be Mr. Invisible.
