STAYING ACTIVE: MLB.com's Mark Sheldon noted the Reds reportedly have signed P Johnny Cueto to a new four-year, $27M contract, which would "mean that the Reds have committed a combined $151 million this winter toward contracts" for four players: Cueto, P Bronson Arroyo, RF Jay Bruce and 1B Joey Votto. The ownership activity "signals to the league and Reds fans that the small-market club, and defending National League Central champions, is trying to keep its window of competitive opportunity open for as long as possible" (MLB.com, 1/24).
SHARING IS CARING: In Atlanta, Carroll Rogers reported the Braves have "launched a new online service to help both current and prospective season ticket holders share and distribute their tickets." Available at braves.com/sharedtickets, it is a "tool that allows prospective season tickets holders to find partners to share tickets with by browsing other accounts for seat locations, price and dates that appeal to them" (AJC.com, 1/24).
