It's FedEx Time

Or at least Ellis Island time, as Rod Barajas has signed with the Pirates (one year, $4M)

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates and veteran catcher Rod Barajas have agreed to a one-year deal with a club option for 2013.

Barajas will make $4 million in 2012 and the club holds a $3.5 million option for the 2013 season. If Barajas is traded, it becomes a mutual option. The 36-year-old hit .230 with 16 home runs and 47 RBIs last season while playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

You will be missed, Rod. Good luck in Pittsburgh!

This does not bode well for the offseason.

I think passing on matching $4 million for Rod Barajas is actually a good sign for this offseason.

Except now that Barajas can command $4 million, every free agent out there will want a Brink's Truck in the front yard.
