My apologies to readers who experienced difficulty logging on and posting comments on Friday. Beerleaguer's hosting service is performing server maintenance and will be fully operational shortly.
In the meantime, comments have been restored for those wishing to discuss the Aaron Fultz resigning. The two sides avoided arbitration and came to terms on a $1.2 million deal to keep the left-hander in Philadelphia for another season. Fultz was the unsung hero of the Phillies bullpen in 2005, holding hitters to a .186 batting average. After posting a career-best 2.24 ERA in 62 games, the 32-year-old avid reader of Tom Clancy paperbacks could be shuffled into a more significant role.
Please note: Fultz is the team's only reliable left-hander. Consider this an important, below-the-fold resigning.
If only my hosting service was as dependable.
