The Eagle has Landed!

Jeff is a snake!

He's signed a 1-year major league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-backs, apparently concerned about Jeff's bad shoulder (a rumor confirmed!) have structured the deal so that they are protected if Jeff cannot contribute on a daily basis due to his shoulder. There is an option for year 2.

All the Jeff fans will be very very pleased to hear this, I'm sure. Congrats to Jeff and his family, this looks like a nice deal in a good situation where he can play more if he performs well. I see trips to Phoenix in our future, and not just for Spring Training.

Details of the deal can be found everywhere (that AP, I swear, it's like everyone knows when it goes out on AP)

Key dates for Jeff fans

With JeffWatch 06 finally behind us (that was close, players report to spring training pretty darn soon!), we here at Watching Jeff Davanon are pleased to announce that in the coming weeks we'll be re-launching as Watching All Angels. WJD will probably stay open in some capacity for the 10 of us who have a Jeff obsession, as well as being folded into the new site.

Yeah! Finally I know where we will be travellng and I hope that Jeff will see more playing time.

Ken Rosenthal of on Jeff 02/10/06:

"The Diamondbacks' latest addition, outfielder Jeff DaVanon, likely will get most of his playing time in center, but he could also spell Luis Gonzalez and Shawn Green on the corners."
