Brett Tomko signs with Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- With Jeff Weaver's return still uncertain, the Dodgers moved to shore up the starting rotation on Thursday by signing free agent right-hander Brett Tomko.
Tomko signed for two years with a third-year option and $8.7 million guaranteed -- $3.6 million in 2006, $4.1 million in 2007 and a mutual option for 2008 at $4.5 million or a $1 million buyout if Tomko opts out.

The 32-year-old right-hander went 8-15 with a 4.14 ERA in 2005 for the San Francisco Giants. He will be reunited with new Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti, the Gaints' former assistant general manager.

Personally, I don't give a damn. Tomko is a bad pitcher, and the Dodger's aren't getting much. I'm sure Brett with get more bench time with the Dodgers then with the Giants.

Still hurts. No such thing as team loyalty anymore, I guess.
I like it too. They've overpaid for another shitty pitcher. Clearly they didn't learn from the Darren Dreifort debacle.
Makes you wonder why Brett was on the Giants at all. Perhaps Ned is in bed with Brett. It would explain why Colleti dragged his bosom buddy to LA with him.

Personally, I 'd love it if the Giants nabbed Jeff Weaver. He's not that great of a pitcher, but he's good enough, young, and alot better then Tomko. He wouldn't cost too much either.
