I don't really put much stock in Rosenthal after that Tim Hudson fiasco, but I could see Ned doing this. Let's hope not though.Hell's bells, Hollywood style?

The idea of the Dodgers signing Hoffman makes a lot of sense.
The Dodgers have so many holes, they might be unable to spend heavily if they replace closer Takashi Saito, who will be 39 next season and coming off an elbow injury.
Hoffman, 41, could serve as a one-year mentor for setup man Jonathan Broxton, who is still only 24. Staying in the NL West almost certainly would appeal to Hoffman. So would the chance to stick it his former team, the Padres.
We signed our first FA!

Infielder Maza Re-Signed
The Dodgers re-signed infielder Luis Maza to a minor-league contract and invited the non-roster player to spring training.
Maza, 28, was at one point last season the team's starting shortstop after being called up for his first major league action. He hit .228 with one home run and four RBI in 45 games before being designated for assignment in July.
Manny is going to decline the arbitration.
