Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
A man I have defended over a number of seasons (though that was seriously tested last season) has signed for my beloved Essex, Saj Mahmood has put pen to paper on a two-year deal. Will certainly offer us a bit more pace, along with Napier, Mills and Topley. Be interesting to see how he's used, but as Paul Grayson said, it's good to sign players that have a point to prove.

Maybe he has been brought in with one-day cricket in mind, but that's be a dangerous move!
Bailey's signed for Hampshire.

Yeah, happy enough with that, decent replacement for Katich. Mckenzie coming back as well so batting looks fairly solid.
Still need to find a pace bowler though.
Jetan Patel Warwickshires overseas pick.
Dave Nosworthy to coach Somerset ?
If so, they're getting a quality coach.
I wonder who will replace Giles at Warkwickshire.
Chris Jordan joins Sussex from Surrey.
Klinger joining Gloucestershire as captain. Not the worst decision Bracewell has ever made. Probably the best Glos could do within wage constraints - and Klinger should be available for the whole season.
Also a couple of Gloucestershire spin bowlers made the england u19 squad for their tour to SA so hopeful more positive times lie ahead
A certain M Johnson joins Worcestershire. Unfortunately for county fans it's Michael not Mitchell. Dual passport holder and wicketkeeper.
Been also watching the Bangladesh PL auction on twitter and quite a few county players signed up.
Shah, Bopara(125000- one of the higher bids), Mustard, Cobb, Roy, Liddle, Hales, Stevens, K O'Brien all signed up so far and it's still going on,
Miles Hammond being one of the U19s - the first player Oxfordshire have had go on to England selection since... well, I have absolutely no idea of the answer to this question, it depends on what you define as England colours and what you define as an Oxfordshire player... it's not recent, anyway, that's for sure, but it certainly makes my opening lines of the new County winter season next month rather simple!
