Rockies sign pair to Minor League deals | News
The Rox signed Eric Duncan (a utility player who hasn't made it above Triple-A and last appeared for the Braves' AA club) and Geno Espineli (former Giants' farmhand who pitched for Triple-A Fresno last season) to minor league deals. They'll both be invited to Spring Training with the MLB club.

Headin 2 McCormick Field 2 hit with Iannetta and new hitting coach Carney Lansford...I think he's gonna help us out tremendously this season

If Lansford can somehow get these two to realize their potential, the result would be equal to, or better than, signing an impact free agent bat. Oh, and Ian's posting about baseball. Awesome!

Jack Etkin at Inside The Rockies details the situation behind the Rockies losing Chris Frey to the Phillies in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 Draft.

I'll probably throw some more links up as the morning goes on.
