Cubs and Ward reach agreement

Former Brave Daryle Ward and the Cubs have reached an agreement on a one-year contract. He should prove to be a useful left-handed bat amidst a roster filled with right-handed hitters.

From a column about the Winter Meetings by Jeff Passan, Yahoo!Sports writer:

Best Contract: Jason Schmidt, Los Angeles Dodgers

Worst Contract #1: Gil Meche, Kansas City Royals

Worst Contract #2: Ted Lilly, Chicago Cubs

Worst Contract #3:
J.D. Drew, Boston Red Sox

Best One-Sided Trade: Atlanta receives Rafael Soriano for Horacio Ramirez. Soriano could eventually close for the Braves. Ramirez will never be anything more than a serviceable No. 4 starter for Seattle, and even that is a long shot.

Nice to see Atlanta management and Braves fans aren't the only ones thinking this was a great move for the club.
