Howell in the Fold

Just exchanged texts with J.P. Howell and he said he has a deal with the Rays for $1.8 million this season.

According to the Rays left-hander, the deal also includes incentives.

Thus, the Rays have reached deals with Howell and Jason Bartlett ($4 million) and appear headed for arbitration with B.J. Upton, which leaves only Matt Garza.  Have not heard anything about the Rays right-hander yet.

Would you prefer to lose Carl Crawford and Carlos Pena ( via free agency ) to a team in your division like The Boston Red Sox or The New York Yankees ( and have to see them in LF or DH ing 19 – 38 times a year ) or would you prefer to have them dealt to a team in the NL like …. The Mets for instance ???
