This article mentions that Jermaine Dye is a class C free agent. Why isn't he class A? Or, a better question, what determines which class a free agent falls under?

It's a ranking of how the player performed in the previous year compared to others by position.

type A - top 30%
type B - 31 to 50%
type C - lower 50%

this ranking (Elias?) determines the compensation picks but the team has to offer the free agent arbitration before Dec 7 deadline in order to get the compensation pick

Well, talk about Rincon being a pitch-to-one-batter specialist, in reality, that's what Bradford has become, because like righties against Rincon, the opposition pinch hits lefties against Bradford. I will be surprised if they tender Bradford.

As for Street, as of last nite (pitched 2 scoreless innings for the save), he has thrown 16 innings in AFL and his era is down to 0.56. Also, isn't Garcia pitching in winter ball ... DR? If he is, he must not be doing much, because each day I get prior nite's stats from BA on the winter leagues. They generally only show the highlight players for the nite, and I haven't seen Garcia's name mentioned once.

Jairo Garcia is pitching for the Leones del Escogido

I went on their website,

http://www.escogido.com

but the player's link was broken, and I could not find his stats.

However, I managed to unearth the following line for the Tigres del Licey website.

Jairo Garcia 1.00IP 3H 2R 2ER 1BB 2SO

I thought the C stood for "Crappy"?

Chris Hammond is Type A?

What is he being ranked against, all other left handed marble thumbers over 50?

His combined era over the last two years is about 2.8. We might not have had the confidence in him to use him in tight situations, but he performed very well when we did this year.

Poor guy - no one will sign him if they have to lose a draft pick. He'd have been better off being a Type B.

I doubt we offer him Arbi ... don't want to be stuck with him accepting.
