It's Official. Dotel Signs.

At one year for 2 million, Octavio Dotel comes dirt cheap. Tommy John surgery will do that for a player. I hope he can get back to the Dotel of 2004, the Dotel who dominated and not the one who choked. Physical success rates from his type of surgery are in the low nineties, but it usually takes more than a season to get back on track.

I think with Rivera as the late inning anchor combined with the run support they'll recieve from the still explosive offense, this newly fomed bullpen (Farnsworth, Myers, Small, Dotel, Rivera, Sturtze, Villone) may congeal into a tough group to score on in the later innings.
