Wolf Wants To Be A Dodger, Again
Wolf, 32, went 12-12 with a 4.30 ERA in 190 1/3 innings for the Padres and Astros after the Dodgers declined his $9 million option for 2008 when shoulder surgery derailed his previous season. The left-hander from West Hills is interested in coming home again.Weird fact: despite playing in much more pitcher-friendly Petco, Wolf was more than a run better at Minute Maid Park last year. That included an amazing 4-0 complete game shutout against the Cubs last September, his first since 2004. I doubt this is anything other than his agent making noise, but it's possible the Dodgers are listening.
"The Dodgers have not made an offer," Wolf said in an e-mail. "If the Dodgers want to come forward, I would be open to the possibility."
