Mota agrees to rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen
The 35-year-old right-hander was 5-6 with a 4.11 ERA in 58 games with the Milwaukee Brewers last season
Guillermo Mota has agreed to the terms of one-year contract to rejoin the Dodgers, according to baseball sources who were granted anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the matter. The deal is pending a physical, which is scheduled for today.

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

Why does Flanders have such ah hard-on for players long passed their prime?

With this rotation and bullpen that **** Face is "assembling," the Dodgers are going to get ****-slapped around every game this year. It's going to be embarrassing watching this team try to pitch.

Jeez, glad we're stockpiling every old, over the hill pitcher we can get.

Just wait until Fluffer Flanders signs Garland and Wolf, then you'll really love the pitchers.

I'm OK with bringing Mota in. Juan Cruz was the other alternative, and he would have cost more money and a 1st round pick. The 8th and 9th innings belong to Kuo and Broxton. Wade and Mota can handle the rest. And it seems that each year the Dodgers always turn up a quality reliever out of nowhere (Wade, Beimel, Seanez, Saito, Duaner, etc.)
Starting pitching is a much bigger concern. Garland seems on a big decline, and high WHIP/low strikeout guys are disasters waiting to happen. I'd rather take a gamble on Sheets, or see if Pettitte is a possibility.

I am generally against signing people with that make T's in their name but I'll make an exception for him

Might as well sign Pedro.
