Lost in all of the midnight non-tender deadline stuff was the fact that the Diamondbacks agreed to a one-year deal with pitcher Zach Duke, who they acquired from Pittsburgh last week.  If they couldn’t do a deal, the Dbacks were going to non-tender him rather than go to arbitration.

The contract: $4.25 million. In like, American dollars. For a guy who went 8-15 with a 5.72 ERA and who will now be pitching in a much more hitter-friendly ballpark. But, hey, at least he makes up for being hit hard by not striking out a lot of guys and walking a good many too.  The total package, that Duke.

Four and a half million for that?  And people seriously think that Manny Ramirez should only get $800K?
