Jon Weisman just broke the news that Ronnie Belliard has re-signed with the Dodgers for one year, $825K:
The Dodgers now find themselves with two right-handed-hitting infielders to share time at second base (and backing up Casey Blake at third base) with the lefty DeWitt. Belliard made $1.9 million in 2009. Though Joe Torre has had encouraging words about DeWitt, you wonder how quickly his late-2009 infatuation with Belliard will abate. Belliard could be the team's starting second baseman as the season unfolds (even if he's buried on the bench like Orlando Hudson when the season folds).
To my knowledge, Orlando Hudson is also swimming around there in unemployedsville. Why not pick Hudson up too, and have a full on tea party (along with DeWitt and Jamey Carroll) at second base?
Welcome back, Belliard!
