While this isn’t a Yankee thing, I think it’s important to report this.  Matt Wieters was one of the bigger free agents this off season and it took until now for him to be signed.  That’s pretty interesting as teams are not jumping immediately to sign big time players to big deals as much anymore.  I mean, look at Jose Bautista for crying out loud.

The Washington Post as the story about Wieters:

“The Washington Nationals agreed to terms with catcher Matt Wieters on a two-year deal on Tuesday, one that allows the 30-year-old to opt out after this season and hit free agency again next winter, and therefore amounts to a one-year deal with the possibility for a second.

The deal is not official, as it is pending a physical to be held Wednesday, but would include $5 million in deferred money, a recent staple of the Nationals’ more high-profile free agent signings.”

The Nationals have a great group of talent and are always on the brink of making the World Series only to don’t.  Maybe a few more extra players can do it.  The Wieters signing is significant in my opinion.

Anyway, just wanted to keep you in the loop.  Good Stuff.
