Jon Heyman reports that the Dodgers have signed reliever Todd Coffey to a one-year, $1.3 million deal with an option for 2013.

Coffey appeared in 69 games for the Nationals last season, posting a 3.62 ERA. His strikeout rate was lower than it had been in a while though, at 6.9 per nine innings.

Gleeman isn’t here today, but know that if he was, he’d be complaining about how the Twins didn’t sign him. That’s sort of his BSOHL thing this winter. The difference being that his particular obsession is justified and has a point.

    Rumor has it that arguably Aaron’s BSOL thing is also to do with him, Gleeman, being in the BSO his L. I do believe that it wasn’t so long ago he and Todd Coffey had a similar profile.

    That’s sort of his BSOHL thing this winter.

    unfortunately, this is definitely not the first winter for that particular complaint of his.

    Why didn’t you pick the picture that makes Todd look fat?

    I was concerned when I read the headline and saw that Craig wrote it that I wouldnt get a “decent reliver at a good price for the Twins” reference but Craig didn’t let me down. Thanks Craig! I will go have pie to celebrate now.

    Hope Dodgers fans enjoy watching Todd run in from the bullpen. It is a sight to behold.

    Boy is he going to stick out in Los Angeles with all the skinny bobbleheads walking around.

    Todd Coffey has been working out with Kung Fu Panda and is now in the best shape of his life.
