Balfour to Rays A Win For Both Sides
The Tampa Bay Rays addressed their closer issue earlier today when they resigned their former reliever, and although Balfour lost out on $3MM because his deal with the Orioles fell through, it appears he is in a better position being back with Tampa anyways:
So Oriole Dr. No cost Grant Balfour $3M. He’s w/ contender he knows& likes, a manager he loves, no state tax, own bed all year.
