Diamondbacks Sign Flash

The Arizona Diamondbacks signed former Phillie, Tom "Flash" Gordon to a one year deal worth $500,000 with incentives. Gordon, 41, missed most of last season recovering from ulnar nerve decompression surgery.

After making the All Star team in 2006, in 34 appearances last season, Flash posted an ERA of 5.16 and WHIP of 1.62. In 2007, Gordon made 44 appearance with a 4.73 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.

Gordon's numbers have declined the past few seasons and a lot may have to do with injuries. Either way, its a low risk deal for the Diamondbacks.

The Florida Marlins are interested in not only Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, but Chris Coste as well. The Phillies want to evaluate Ronnie Paulino before they decide to move Coste. Another catching option for the Phillies could include Lou Marson.

In all honesty, I wish Gordon well, but it'll be a long, long, long time until I ever refer to him as "Flash" again.


I saw this Gordon transaction. IronPigs Australia WBC pitcher Travis Blackley went to Arizona
