Dodgers Hungry for the Wolf?

Thanks to Dodger Thoughts poster "Robert Daeley" for the tip: Ken Rosenthal at reports the Dodgers are close to signing pitcher Randy Wolf. The good news: He's a lefty. The bad news: He has a history of injuries. (Quick, give that man $55 million!):

Wolf, who missed nearly 13 months after undergoing elbow-ligament transplant surgery on July 1, 2005, pitched inconsistently after rejoining the Phillies last season, going 4-0 with a 5.56 ERA in 12 starts.

Pitchers generally are stronger in their second season removed from the surgery. Any team that signs Wolf would be banking on such a comeback; his last season without elbow trouble was 2003.

Sounds like it's one year, $8M. Crazy Neddie is at it again!

Note how the LA Times Dodgers Blog ripped off your headline. Please, please, tell me now.

It's not exactly original to begin with.
