Tadahito Iguchi’s agent met with the Rockies today, continuing the “preliminary” discussions that started with phone conversations.
I’ve been thinking that the Rockies should sign Tadaguchi for a while now, but I haven’t written about it because doing so would just get my hopes up and I’ve already lost him once (when the White Sox traded him to the Phillies). It’s a perfect match — a reliable and relatively inexpensive second baseman and, well, a team that needs someone at 2B and doesn’t want to spend a ton of cash. The thought of one of my favorite 2005 White Sox players coming to the Rockies is so awesome I can’t even stand it.
