In what has become a 24-hour period that could rival Jack Bauer's level of excitement and adrenaline, the Phillies have finished off yet another ink job. Rube and the Gang have signed Cuban righty Jose Contreras to a one-year deal. The deal has been compared to Chan Ho Park's last year, where he was able to vie for a job as a starter but was ultimately used as a crucial bullpen piece. Contreras provides competition for Moyer and Kendrick for the fifth start spot, but should end up stabilizing our 'pen. Then again, who knows? It's a low risk move that could turn out to be huge. This all, of course, is pending a physical. Exact figures to be released soon.
