David Newhan has signed a 1-year contract with the Mets. Look for numerous articles in the New York newspapers where the fact that Newhan is: a) the son of a sportswriter (Ross Newhan of the LA Times) and b) Jewish (like the New York Times wrote last year. While both facts have been known about Newhan for a while, it will now mean more because he's on the Mets.

Chris Reitsma signed a 1-year contract with Seattle. Reitsma was 1-2 with an 8.68 ERA last year with Atlanta.

Jerry Hairston signed a minor-league contract with Texas.

Adam Melhuse avoided arbitration by re-signing with Oakland. Melhuse's primary job will be coming to the park every day and asking Jason Kendall how he's feeling.

i just got home from work and saw the headline about newhan signing w/ the muts. the very first thing i thought was - i better go check the griddle 'coz there's gotta be something about him being jewish there!

...and i was right! so the muts now have 2 jewish players at once (shawn green). boston had 4 last year for a minute...
