Blake & Loretta --> Dodgers

The Dodgers appear to be on the verge of announcing the return of third baseman Casey Blake.

According to various reports, the Dodgers and Blake have agreed to a three-year deal. The Los Angeles Daily News reported that the contract is worth about $17 million.

LAS VEGAS -- While closing in on re-signing third baseman Casey Blake, the Dodgers further solidified their infield depth Monday night by agreeing to terms with veteran utilityman Mark Loretta on a one-year contract, according to agent Bob Garber. Loretta must pass a physical exam for the deal to be official.

Club officials declined comment when asked to confirm the agreement.

Some thoughts, the Dodgers have essentially traded away Andy LaRoche who was cheap and under club control for 3 more years for 3 years and $17million to Casey Blake who is old and declining. This is the kind of dumb move that leads the team to being "Cash strapped". I don't think Blake will be productive over the length of this deal.

This also takes the Dodgers out of the immediate running for Beltre.
