Jonathan Broxton close to signing, won’t return to Dodgers

Jonathan Broxton‘s agent told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that the rehabbing right-hander is close to signing and has ruled out returning to the Dodgers.

According to agent B.B. Abbott “he had multiple suitors and we should have something tentative in the next few days.”

Earlier this offseason Broxton was said to be open to staying in Los Angeles and Abbott admitted that he had some talks with the Dodgers, but apparently they never advanced very far.

Broxton last pitched on May 3 and underwent minor elbow surgery in September, which along with his struggles dating back to mid-2010 make it likely the once-dominant closer will have to take an incentive-laden one-year deal.

    “We should have something tentative in the next few days.”

    That statement could have been off of any of the early Firesign Theater albums. How can you not love a comment like that? How? Tell me. Go on. Tell me.

      No, better – it could have been a line of dialogue in an Ed Wood Jr. movie, Plan Nine, Glen or Glenda or even Bride of the Monster. It’s right up there with “And then, as suddenly as it began, the war ended.”

        No, no…or better yet – a line George W. Bush wrote to his father about a forthcoming report card from Yale.

    Oddly, a 4″x6″ notecard was found where B.B. Abbott had been standing with these words upon: “insert disingenuous boilerplate HERE.”
