Colletti Gets a League of His Own

From Dylan Hernandez at the LA Times:

Reliever Brandon League has finalized a new three-year deal with the Dodgers, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Times.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal isn’t expected to be announced until Wednesday. Financial terms of the contract were not immediately known. [...]

The Dodgers bullpen posted an earned-run average of 3.23 this season, fourth-best in the National League and eighth-best in the major leagues.

Many of the main contributors, including Kenley Jansen and setup man Ronald Belisario, will be back. [...]

Colletti said last week he also had interest in re-signing the Dodgers’ two other free-agent relievers, right-hander Jamey Wright and situational left-hander Randy Choate.

Are you so sure Belisario will be back? Anyways, it'll be interesting whether League or Jansen gets anointed the closer during spring training. If these guys can replicate their success from last season, I'm feeling pretty good about the seventh through ninth.

UPDATE:

Just when Ned needs to make a two year deal he goes for three. Ahh well better than than the other 3 year deal he made a few years back.

Ned doesn't have very good luck with three-year deals, does he?

nice headline, btw, Orel. Let's hope there won't be crying in (Dodgers) baseball over this deal.

WTF, Lakers? Laying an egg.

Way to come out swinging at home to start the season.

Like the League signing and the concrete pronouncement that he will be our closer. Let's get this done in 2013.
