In news breaking across the wires, the Los Angeles Dodgers have retained Kenley Jansen, to the tune of five years and $80 million. He has an option to leave after three years.
Over the past couple of weeks rumors have had Jansen and the Dodgers far apart as he weighed very attractive financial offers from the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals. There was even speculation he would reunite with his former manager, Don Mattingly, in Miami. However, I never really bought into that Marlins rumor.
Other rumors are frantically flying about that Justin Turner will be the next to sign and stay in Los Angeles. Who says Mondays are all bad?
