Bloomquist, D-Backs agree to 2-year deal

Port Orchard native Willie Bloomquist got his wish afterall.

Bloomquist will return to the Arizona Diamondbacks after agreeing to a two-year, $3.8 million contract late Tuesday night. This coming after the Diamondbacks and Bloomquist’s agent, Scott Boras, had exchanged some heated words over the the weekend.

Hey, it might be baseball on the field, but it’s business first and foremost.

Bloomquist turns 34 on Nov. 17. Nice early birthday present. Nice reward for a hard-working guy who can play every position. Nice peace of mind for him and his family, who live in Scottsdale, to know that he’s going to be in the place he wants to be for the next two years.

Nice piece of the puzzle for the Diamondbacks. If Stephen Drew isn’t ready at the start of the season because of serious ankle surgery, they know Bloomquist can be an everyday shortstop. He proved it in 2010.
