Red Sox reach agreement with catcher Doug Mirabelli. Two years, $3 million. (Yahoo!)

Miller's deal with Brewers is finalized.
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Catcher Damian Miller's $8.75 million, three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers was finalized Monday after team doctors allayed concerns over his health.

While the deal was agreed to last week and Miller took a physical Wednesday, the Brewers put off completing the agreement because they couldn't find any of their team physicians to read the MRI exam results ahead of the holiday weekend.

Miller Crossing. "The one thing I did question was the wisdom of locking up a 35-year-old catcher for three years (though only two guaranteed). So how risky is that, in general?" (Mike's Baseball Rants)

The Kendall trade. "The A's again demonstrated that, given an opportunity anywhere in baseball with a team that will pick up a phone, they'll try and get themselves in on the deal. Especially in a situation like this, where a team's determined to get rid of a player or improve in some particular area, the A's will be there with four different ways to solve the other team’s problem, and being to wear them down until a deal’s made." (U.S.S. Mariner)
