Lyle Overbay hit a combined .234/.310/.360 with the Pirates and Diamondbacks next year. He only hit nine home runs all year. The Diamondbacks apparently want to bring him back for another year.
Of course, the D'Backs will almost certainly finish with a better record than the Pirates in 2012 and the Pirates are playing Clint Barmes more than $10 million over the next two years. So maybe the joke is on me.
I'm thinking that's more of a "mentor" move for Paul Goldschmidt. Meanwhile if Barmes hits .265 with 15 homers, 60 RBI, plays solid (not spectacular) defense and doesn't "lapse" into Cedeno-mode, I think it'll a good signing.
