Astros re-sign Tony Sipp

And here's your big news of the day, until something happens later that might be bigger. Or not. Whatever.

This *is* big because as of right now Kevin Chapman is the only lefty option out of the bullpen. If the Astros have indeed re-signed Sipp, he fills an awfully big role.

UPDATE: Sipp's deal is 3yrs/$18m.

Not that it's my money, but this seems like a good deal given what relievers are getting this offseason. Jason Motte and John Axford each got 2yrs/$10m, while relievers like Soria, O'Day, Madson were in the $7-7.5m range.
