The subject of one of Big Black’s most beloved songs, P Brad Penny has signed a one year, $5.1 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

LA are also said to be inviting Scott Erickson to spring training, which wouldn’t be so terrible if they expected him to mow the lawn rather than pitch.

The White Sox have signed former Daiei Hawks 2B Tadahito Iguchi to a two year contract worth as much as $5 million, pending the results of a physical examination. The 30 year old Iguchi (.333 with 24 homers and 89 RBI’s last season), is a 4 time Japanese League All-Star with 3 batting titles and two stolen base crowns on his resume.
