Two more signings

Dallas Morning News is reporting the Astros have signed Brian Bogusevic and Gil de la Vara to one-year deals worth $400,000.

This brings the 2009 payroll to just over $101 million. Remember de la Vara was a Rule 5 pick back in December, so he has to stay on the 25-man roster all season long, or go back to Kansas City - a fate worse than death.
