Dodgers Add To Already Full Bench

The team re-signed Ronnie Belliard and Brad Ausmus to 1-year deals. Contract details are included in the link. Both deals are at least affordable, not surprising considering neither player is that good or consistent, and Ausmus is, to put it nicely, nearing retirement.

This effectively sends A.J. Ellis back to AAA. I find it hard to imagine he can't do what Brad Ausmus can do, with the possibility of some upside. Minimal, minimal upside, yes, but upside nevertheless.

Belliard's re-signing makes me think more and more that the club is trying to find some way to get rid of Blake DeWitt as a starting possibility at second base, which baffles me, but hey, lots of things baffle me. Lots and lots of things, unfortunately. Especially lately.
