This article focuses on the signing of various baseball players by different baseball teams in the U.S. The transfer of Jim Thome by the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team to the baseball team Chicago White Sox allows baseball player Ryan Howard to play first base, his best position. In return, the Phillies received Aaron Rowand, who is very good defensively. The Washington Nationals baseball team also strengthened their bench by signing Marion Anderson, a top pinch hitter. The Houston Astros baseball team expect to know by Christmas whether Roger Clemens will retire.
