I won't get into the whole thing again, but the team pretty obviously right now doesn't have a plan to realistically compete, so it saved itself $7 million on a stopgap. I was fine with signing him if the team went in the other direction, but they haven't.

Per MLBTR, the Tigers are close to signing Joe Nathan and the Royals are making a hard push for Carlos Beltran.

3-team trade brewing with C Ryan Hanigan headed from the Reds to the Rays.

Heath Bell headed from Arizona to Cincy with money headed the other way, while our old friend David Holmberg will head to the Reds, as well. DBacks will get a lefty reliever and a PTBNL or cash.

White Sox might also be a minor player in the deal, acquiring C Jose Lobaton from Tampa.

Salty is also from Florida so there's that.
Personally, I would take Lobaton (if its true) at 480K over whatever Salty's deal is.

Rays reporter said that Lobaton is still with the team, so we'll see if something comes of that, but not looking like it right now.

Elsewhere, Luke Gregerson dealt to Oakland for OF Seth Smith.

Lobaton is a switch hitter, so that is a plus if he is dealt here.

I see no mention of the White Sox in the article.

The article has been continuously updated as deal unfolds.

Sounds like Lobaton is remaining with Tampa for the time being.

Alex Speier ‏@alexspeier

Buy high or buy low? What Pierzynski vs. Saltalamacchia says about Sox' free agent philosophy.

Saltalamacchia’s quest for a three-year deal represented an imperfect fit for the Sox.
