Charlie Haeger and Chris Smith have also signed minor league contracts


I don't have the time to write these up like I'd like to, what with Thanksgiving and all, but in short: Haeger's a 27 year old knuckleballer who just had a miserable 2010, and Smith is a 29 year old righty reliever (from the Brewers!) with soft stuff but good minor league numbers. The knuckler obviously makes Haeger interesting, while I refuse to believe anyone named 'Chris Smith' could be in any way exceptional at anything.
