The Giants are bringing back Steve Kline on a 2-year deal worth a reported $3.5 million.

The White Sox are bringing back Mike McDougal on a 3-year deal worth $6.45 million.

Houston will return Brandon Backe who is rehabbing an injury.

Brandon Inge will stay with Detroit for four years worth $24 million.

But Marlon Byrd will leave Washington for the greener pastures of Texas on a one-year deal.

Russ Springer will stay in the NL Central and move from Houston to St. Louis for one year at $1.75 million.

Todd Walker and Tony Graffanino agreed to accept arbitration from their present clubs: San Diego and Milwaukee, respectively.

In the special category of "really big guys who play first base who never were quite as good as we thought they would be":

Daryle Ward is a Cub and Ken Harvey is going to try to become a Twin.

I noticed how you stopped using "bringing back" when talking about Brandon Backe...

That wasn't a conscious decision, but it does sound better. Nor did I notice that I had two straight Brandons.

Is Russ Springer a knuckle baller, or was that Dennis..?

Dennis was the knuckleballer. Russ is still quite active.
