    Default Dodgers apparently lose out on Trevor Hoffman

    The all-time save leader reportedly will sign with the Milwaukee Brewers.

    The Dodgers appeared to have lost out on their targeted veteran closer late Wednesday, when the Associated Press reported that Trevor Hoffman was close to signing with the Milwaukee Brewers.

    Dammit.

    What an awful off season.

    I don't think losing out on Hoffman is a big deal. He wants a shot at 600 career saves, and I don't think LA could offer that since it'd likely take 2 years.

    Broxton is the closer now, and LA can now focus on adding a couple setup guys instead of Hoffman. I'd prefer they sign Reyes and Cruz, which would make a dominant setup team along with Wade and Kuo. I have a feeling the Dodgers will go after Mota instead of Cruz because he'd be cheaper, for less years, and won't cost a 1st round pick.

    But in the end, if the Dodgers can sign two relievers for the price of Hoffman (probably will be even less) then they will be in good shape in the bullpen. A pen of Broxton, Kuo, D. Reyes, Wade, Mota, Troncoso/Stults/etc. would be solid.
