Saarloos, Aquino signed to Minor League deals

The Indians signed right-handers Kirk Saarloos and Greg Aquino to Minor League contracts with invites to Spring Training camp.


The 29-year-old Saarloos has a career record of 29-30 with a 5.02 ERA in 165 games, including 73 starts, with the Astros, Reds and A's from 2002-08. He was a third-round pick of the Astros in the 2001 Draft and has compiled a 29-10 record and 3.29 ERA in 99 games, including 56 starts, in the Minors.


Saarloos spent most of '08 in the starting rotation for the A's Triple-A Sacramento affiliate. He went 9-4 with a 4.22 ERA in 22 starts. His ERA was the eighth-lowest in the Pacific Coast League. He also had two stints with the A's, appearing in eight games, including one start, and going 1-0 with a 5.47 ERA in 26 1/3 innings.


The 30-year-old Aquino has gone 2-4 with 17 saves and a 5.40 ERA in 135 relief appearances for the Diamondbacks, Brewers and Orioles since 2004. He led the Diamondbacks with 16 saves in 2004.


A converted infielder, Aquino began '08 with the Orioles but was designated for assignment by the end of April after putting up a 14.21 ERA. He returned to the club in July but was quickly placed on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain and was later outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk. With Norfolk for the bulk of the season, he went 2-2 with nine saves and a 2.45 ERA in 23 outings.


Why is there a picture of this clown in paris, france? Castro is a bum. Go back to OU, noob-cake.

Go back to the yankee’s web site, dick…

That was a little bit uncalled for. By a little bit I mean a lot. I don’t see any reason why you felt you had to say that deezenuts (btw, what the hack does that mean?).

Go back to france, you rifle-dropping coward.

Deezenuts: (aka D*%*&*bag)

Don’t you have anything better to do than go onto other people’s websites and bad mouth them?? Get a job you bum…

On another website I saw a discussion of a Fernando Cabrera rennaisance this winter in the Dominican, since his arm is recovered from surgery and his control is back in form, and his winter numbers really are very good. Any chance the Tribe would consider a spring training invite to FCab?

Lindseth, let’s try to stay on topic, please.

GoTribe, clearly, I don’t have anything better to do; apparently neither do you. It seems you have nothing better to do than to defend some hack of a ‘journalist’. Why don’t you get a job?

Finally, if I were a bum, how would I be online? Don’t you think I’d be trying to burn my computer and keyboard for warmth.

Look man, I’m glad you are a Tribe fan, as am I. I’m not glad, however, that you are a complete moron, as exemplified by your previous post.

Thanks for your consideration,


good one… but what do you have against Castro?

You’ve finally done it AC, you’re officially on the map.

I think he looks kinda cute in the pic. Ha. I always read this blog but just made an “account” or whatever. I’m a huuuuge Tribe fan!!😀

ps. the phrase “noob cake” is really grating on my nerves.

Cute? The only thing he is missing is a beret. Please, to quote the real AC (Austin Carr), Get that weak stuff outta here!
Perhaps the reason that the term noob-cake is “grating on your nerves” is because it so easily could pertain to you, as well.

Deeznuts… You still haven’t answered my question. Why do you not like AC?? There has to be a reason?

You sound like a Yankee fan to me… Go join Lebron…

Castrovince has been straight money with his reports from the Winter Meetings, all the way up to now.

You want to talk hack… Paul Hoynes. Castrovince is blowing him out of the water.

Keep up the good work! Too bad they cut the mailbags, but I’ll keep stopping by to see what you’ve answered.

Wow. Would this be a bad time to ask what a noob-cake is?

Don’t feed the trolls, folks.

Although now I have an irresistible urge to go call some of my coworkers “noob-cakes”. See, you CAN get something positive from a troll!

Anthony, deeznuts nailed you with (according to Wiki) a killer World of Warcraft slap in the face…

A newbie (aka newb, nub(cake), noob, or n00b) is a player who is either new to World of Warcraft or experienced in the game yet ignorant of how to play. Note that while all these terms are derived from the word newbie and have the same literal meaning, their connotations are quite different.

I fear I may now be dragged in to deeznuts’ sweet comments… suppose a comment about slapping my mom or that I a bum is in order. You are so awesome deeznuts. You little dork.

No wait… I messed up on spelling… Get me deeznuts, you gotta nail me now! Your still a little dork…
