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.
