We'll always have 2010. And Matthew McConaughey jokes.
And what of Rob Rasmussen, the guy we got for Ely? Well, at 5'10", he stands a good chance of becoming one of the few pitchers to qualify for MSB status.
UPDATE: Rasmussen, a former starter for UCLA, seems pretty stoked to be coming back to L.A. (Though, likely by way of ABQ.)
Speechless/incredibly excited to be a Dodger, truly a dream come true!— Rob Rasmussen (@RasmussenRob) December 19, 2012
