    Sadly, not a variety show: RHP Todd Coffey has tentative showcase scheduled for 1/17 as he comes off Tommy John surgery. — Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) December 20, 2013   It sounds so festive. I’m picturing this: Mixed with this: If they do that, I’d advocate for signing Coffey to a three-year, $39 million deal.

    Turning the page on 2012, the Dodgers declined their options on outfielder Juan Rivera ($4 million, $500,000 buyout), Todd Coffey ($2.5 million, $300,000 buyout) and Matt Treanor ($950,000, $150,000 buyout) for 2013. All three were easy calls. Rivera, unsurprisingly, was a waste of $4 million for the Dodgers. He hit just .244/.286/.375 in 312 at-bats…

    Dodgers reliever Todd Coffey will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament that requires Tommy John elbow surgery.

    Men’s Journal didn’t exactly get a scientific sample, but they did survey 100 ballplayers to find out who the most hated man in baseball is. Because he always tops such lists you will not be surprised to learn that A.J. Pierzynski tops this one too: In a Men’s Journal survey of 100 Major League Baseball players, White…

  6. Dodgers activate reliever Todd Coffey from disabled list

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Javy Guerra‘s grip on the Dodgers’ closer job seems very shaky, but the bullpen is getting a little boost today with Todd Coffey returning from the disabled list. Coffey appeared in just three games before being shut down with a knee injury, but he returns after the minimum 15-day stay on the DL. He presents…

    Quantity over quality was the theme of the Dodgers’ winter. The team signed nine free agents for this year’s roster, none of whom will cost more than $4 million in 2012. Let’s dig right in… Rotation Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Ted Lilly Aaron Harang Chris Capuano Bullpen Javy Guerra Kenley Jansen Matt Guerrier Todd Coffey…

    Kim and Kris

    You thought we couldn’t get any more fluffy, empty non-baseball baseball posts in today? Ha!  I have not yet neared the bottom of the barrel.  Not on your life, buster.  Get a load of this: The Minnesota Twins are cutting ties with the Kardashians, too. Well, sort of. The team announced Tuesday it will auction…

  9. How many relievers do the Dodgers plan on carrying this year?

    Feb 3, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Kenley Jansen

    The Dodgers just spent another $1.3 million to add Todd Coffey to what already appeared to be a full bullpen. It’s not a bad deal — worse relievers have signed for more money this winter — but I’m not sure what they felt they needed him for. The Dodgers already have the following relievers on…

  11. Cubs and A’s interested in reliever Todd Coffey

    Jan 31, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Todd Coffey

    I’ve been confused about why the Twins haven’t snatched up one of the many low-cost veteran relievers who’ve signed recently and of the remaining options Todd Coffey would seemingly be a good fit, but Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com in Minnesota reports that they aren’t even in the mix for him. According to Wolfson the Cubs…
