Cody Ross agrees to sign with Red Sox


Cody Ross agreed to sign with the Boston Red Sox, giving them an experienced hitter with postseason success on his resume to help replace J.D. Drew in right field.

Foxsports.com and ESPN.com reported the contract is for one year and $3 million. Ross told The Associated Press in a text message late Monday that the deal won't be finalized until he takes a physical.

The 31-year-old Ross batted .240 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs for the San Francisco Giants last season while playing at least 22 games at every outfield position.

Ross was the 2010 NL championship series MVP for the Giants and helped them win the World Series that year after they picked him up off waivers in August. He expressed his thanks on Twitter to San Francisco fans and wrote: "Looking fwd to meeting the (hash)redsoxnation fans!!"

San Francisco Giants and Angel Pagan Agree on 1 Year Deal


PaganAccording to ESPN, the San Francisco Giants and outfielder Angel Pagan agreed to a $4.85 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration.

Pagan was acquired during last month's winter meetings from the New York Mets for outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez.

The 30-year-old Pagan, who replaced mentor Carlos Beltran in center field while with New York, is a switch-hitter with speed. He batted .262 with seven home runs and 56 RBIs last season, down from .290 with 11 homers and 69 RBIs in 2010. Beltran moved to right field for the Mets in spring training before he was traded to the Giants in late July. After an injury-plagued stint in the Bay Area that saw the 2010 World Series champions miss the playoffs, Beltran departed to the St. Louis Cardinals on a two-year contract.

Pagan's deal includes $150,000 in performance bonuses: $50,000 each for 550, 600 and 650 plate appearances.

Albert Pujols Chooses Hollywood over Miami Beach



While the Los Angeles Angels' signing of free-agent first baseman Albert Pujols to a 10-year contract for around $255 million stunned the baseball world, there was a development that was even more remarkable.

Pujols actually left money on the table.

Pujols rejected the Miami Marlins' offer of 10 years, $275 million a day earlier, according to two people familiar with the offer but not authorized to discuss it due to the sensitive nature of the negotiations.

MLB Network analyst suggested that the Marlins "NO-Trade" team policy was the obstacle that kept him from moving to Miami Beach, even though the money was there...

With incentives and no state tax in Florida, the actual value of the deal could have been worth nearly $300 million.

Pujols also turned down an offer north of $200 million to stay with the Cardinals, and the fact he left his longtime team despite such a lucrative offer to stay no doubt will emerge as a narrative in St. Louis.
