It's almost done

Alyson Footer is reporting that the Pudge signing is almost a done deal. This would be for $1.5 guaranteed and an additional $1.5m in bonuses.
I have to admit: I'm very surprised by this turn of events. Should this go through, what does it mean? Probably that Quintero is C2, Towles heads to Round Rock and Palmisano heads back to Baltimore.

Seeing as how there's a holding pattern until Castro is ready in 2010, Pudge is your bridge and Roy likes throwing to Q.

I need some more time to digest this. What are your thoughts?

I think I like this move. I hope it injects a little life into what seems to be a lifeless team. I wasn't truly excited about any of the four C options coming into camp, so sending them off in different directions doesn't bother me a whole lot.

I do have a question about Towles. If Castro is our guy of the future, what does that mean for JR? Does he become our career Round Rock starter? That sounds thrilling.
