The Tacoma paper reports that the Braves have signed Arthur Rhodes to a three-year deal pending a physical. I’m not comfortable with that deal length, but I expect that’s what had to be done to make it.
The LA Times says that the Dodgers have re-signed Wilson Alvarez. But it’s an odd announcement because it also mentions the news from Saturday about Juan Encarnacion. Assuming that Alvarez wasn’t brought in, I wonder who the other player signed yesterday was.

Had to share this line from the latest Baseball Prospectus Mock Winter Meetings story:
Assuming Adam LaRoche can step in at first base when Julio Franco has to attend his grandchildren’s graduations, the Braves only need a backstop and a bullpen and they’ll be in good shape.
That’s funny …
Did the Braves actually sign Rhodes? I saw something today saying he was close to a deal- or maybe that he had signed one- with the A’s. Anyone know?
Yeah, what is going on? Lee Sinins email hinted that he was going to the A’s.
