I confess to feeling a bit like tiptoeing through a graveyard here, so quiet have things been lately, but since I’m not taking anything back to my laboratory
I figgered I’d let you know the Feesh have signed free agent, former Pirates, Razed and Feelies outfielder Corey Dickerson to a two year deal to patrol the newly shrunken artificialized outfield at Macondo Banana Massacre Field.
Dickerson hit .304 in limited service with the Feelies last season due to a fractured foot and shoulder strain. The deal is pending a physical and should be announced tomorrow. The Feesh wanted a left handed hitting outfielder with the proverbial impact bat, and it looks like they got him for $17.5 million.
Yasiel Puig had been rumored to be close to a deal with the team but he took orf for a Japan vacation instead of staying put and helping his agent put a deal together. Maybe he overplayed his hand; maybe he wanted too much. We might find out in the future but for now, we got a steady, solid player instead of an exciting one.
