A Signing I Don't Like So Much

From the official press release:

The National League West Division Champion Los Angeles Dodgers today agreed to terms with third baseman Casey Blake on a three-year contract with a club option for the 2012 season. General Manager Ned Colletti made the announcement.

As MSTI (two plugs in one day; guess where I've been going for Dodger analysis lately?) points out, the Dodgers essentially outbid themselves on this one, all for the privilege of getting a mediocre, aged, everyday third baseman.  Not sure about the logic there, but I definitely don't like the outcome.  I suppose we'll have to wait and see how Blake does with a full season in Los Angeles.  My guess?  Not so great.

I'm okay with daily plugs!

I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who doesn't dig the Blake deal.
