    • Josh Beckett has won the Dodgers' fifth starter job, Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times reports. He had been competing with lefty Paul Maholm. The announcement makes Maholm's one-year, $1.5MM deal with the Dodgers all the more puzzling. Though not one of this winter's top available starters, few would have projected that the lefty would end up with a deal that didn't even guarantee him a rotation job.

    Not too surprising if he's healthy, I think Maholm still has value to the club though.

    I've always thought Maholm would be a great LOOGY, and could double as a mop up guy.

    Agreed, I prefer him to last year's option of Chris Crapuano.
