"Today we achieved one of our off-season goals," Bavasi said. "Carl Everett is a clutch-hitting run producer with power. As a switch-hitter, he provides our lineup with added versatility. Carl is a winner, most recently as a member of the 2005 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox. His experience and intensity will be welcome additions to our clubhouse."
"Russell gives us a veteran left-handed bat with power and can be used as a first baseman, third baseman or designated hitter," said Zduriencik. "One of our off-season goals is to add some left-handed power to our club. The addition of Russell accomplished some of that."
"I know what Russell can do. I've seen him put spurts together that can be very impressive."
"Russell is going to swing and miss and will have his strikeouts," Zduriencik said, "but Russell also is going to hit the ball out of the ballpark."
