Well, we all know that there ain't much more happening in Colletti-land for the rest of this off-season (cries). But at least we can keep up with some former Dodgers and where they're headed!
- The Arizona Diamondbacks signed 41-year-old Takashi Saito for one year, $1.75M. So I guess we'll see Sammy around Chavez Ravine a bit more in 2012 (relative to when he played for the Brewers).
- Pending results of a physical, peppy but oft-injured Rafael Furcal will return to the world champion Cardinals, having signed a two-year, $14M deal. I was sad to see Raffy go last year but glad he got a ring with St. Louis. I would feel less sad if Dee Gordon really worked out in 2012, particularly from the plate.
- The Giants are re-signing Guillermo Mota (reported $1M, one year). I'm fine with having Mota and his 3.81 ERA up there, despite the fact that he tends to do pretty well against the Dodgers; I sort of feel like he's always on the precipice of a total meltdown, a la recent Jonathan Broxton efforts. We can get to him.
But wait! I stand corrected; it's not quite completely moribund for the Dodgers, at least if you classify talking with corpses as "action." Apparently, we're interested in Coco Crisp, who hasn't played regularly since 2005 with the Indians. Yep, that sounds like a typical Colletti pickup to me. I'm guessing two years minimum. (We're also still interested in Mike MacDougal and the recently non-tendered Hong-Chih Kuo, reflecting our penchant for self-flagellation.)
