The LATimes' Dylan Hernandez said that, in addition to considering Joel Pineiro and 2009 Dodger Vicente Padilla, the Dodgers have also contacted the agents for Braden Looper and 2009 Dodger Jon Garland. Thanks to MLB Trade Rumors for the link.
If we're going back to the well to further investigate Padilla (whom we picked up after he pissed off everyone in Texas, then did decently well for us until his third and final game in the playoffs, in which he gave up 6 ER over 3 IP), or Garland (another mid-season pickup, who went 3-2 for us over six starts with a 2.72 ERA, but was left off the postseason roster), I can only assume that (a) discussions with Pineiro, reportedly a two-horse race with the Mets, aren't faring well; and (b) we aren't that creative in considering other options. (MLB.com's Ken Gurnick estimates that Padilla is ahead of Garland in the Dodgers' chase.)
Looper, who went 14-7 with a 5.22 ERA last year (ERA+ of a woeful 77), doesn't seem to be close to Pineiro's level, either. Given the funding challenges facing the Dodgers (even though they won't admit to them), I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.
