Today brought forth a bumper crop of free agent signings.

In no particular order, but I will lead with:

Braden Looper signing with the Cardinals.

Roberto Hernandez signs with the Pirates.

In the category of guys who were not Mets relievers there is:
Tony Batista leaves Japan and goes to Minnesota.

Norihiro Nakamura appears to be headed back to Japan to play for the Orix Buffaloes and join former teammate Jason Grabowski, although I don't know if the two men ever were on the roster at the same time or if the self-hypnosis made me forget it. Cluck! Bwaaak! Cluck! Bwaaak!

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have released Jeff DaVanon. DaVanon is still in the record books as one of five AL players to hit six home runs in three games along with Tony Lazzeri, Gus Zernial, Manny Ramirez, and Alex Rodriguez. Shawn Green holds the MLB record with seven in three games.

And ... the Yankees have signed Mike Myers.

There likely were more, but those are at least midly interesting.

hee seop choi hit 6 in 3 games last year. it took a fourth game for him to hit the seventh though. and then he hit only 2 more homers in the next three months.
