DodgerBlast: More HUGE Signings

Wow, gotta hand it to Colletti & Co. for really taking risks, opening up the checkbook and making just a major splash in the free agent market. To recap, here are those really significant moves by the Dodgers this week:

Dylan Hernandez breaks the huge news of the Reed Johnson one year, $800K  deal– Johnson is a decent player, a good fifth outfielder that might hit .282 in limited playing time, with a handful of homeruns. Plays hard, is a good clubhouse guy, deceptively good glove man but reminds me of Jason Repko. Why not just stick with the oft-shuttled, four-A Repko and at least have somebody from the farm?

Tony Jackson resurfaces to announce that Jeff Weaver puts down the Xbox long enough to resign – now anybody that follows YKI knows that I love the Valley Weaver, and in fact he pitched extremely well last year as Utility Pitcher. That said, the resigning is just a harsh reminder that Colletti & McCourt missed out on all of the big name free agent pitchers this year, leaving us with Weaver as a potential fourth or fifth starter.

Alfredo Amezaga accepts a Minor League deal with the Dodgers, though he will probably start the season in the Bigs. Now Amezaga is a versatile fellow – and it will be a pleasure to hear Vin Scully say his name here & there as he racks up the Southwest Rapid Rewards flying frequently between Las Vegas (AAA) & Los Angeles (The Bigs) – but he just can’t hit all that well. Reminds me of a slightly worse Jose Vizcaino, circa 1999.
