So He's Still Playing Baseball?

The O's signed crappy former Phillies' right-hander Adam Eaton, and Philadelphia has fired back by signing former Baltimore righty Rodrigo Lopez. At least the Orioles got a good amount of value out of their pitcher on the cheap ($34.6 M in value vs. $7.1 M in salary, from FanGraphs). The Phillies paid Eaton $15.2 M (plus another $8.45 M for 2009) for $0.6 M in value over his two years there.

I always liked Rodrigo - especially when he alternated good and bad seasons (3.57 ERA, 5.82, 3.59, 4.90 in his first four years with the team).
