Cowley:

“We’ve kept our eye on [Teahen] the last few years, asked about him last year and nothing materialized,’’ Williams said of the trade. “He’s a tough-nosed ballplayer. He was hurt last year and dragged his ass out there. He’s a winner.’’ It didn’t hurt that current minor league director Buddy Bell had Teahen under him when Bell was the Royals manager. “It’s about projection sometimes guys,’’ Williams said in response to those that might criticize the move. “The defensive fit, Buddy Bell’s experience with Mark in the clubhouse and having him on the field made him a pretty attractive player for us.’’ …

BTW, talks on bringing Scott Podsednik back appear to have broken down:

The other news to come out of Friday was that talks with Podsednik on staying atop the lineup for 2010 have broken down, meaning that Jordan Danks could be tabbed as the third outfielder/leadoff hitter. Williams said there was very little money for a free agent, making Chone Figgins a pipedream once again. “Money is tight,” Williams said. “Money is tight all over the world, certainly on the South Side. We’ll spend whatever we have available, but there’s not much.” “As far as Podsednik is concerned, we already had talks and a little bit of dialogue back and forth with him. It’s not likely based on what he wants so we’ll have to look elsewhere.”
