What Happened In 2014: Got into 61 games, and yet you don’t remember a single one, do you?
Last December, we heard that Jamey Wright was deciding between the Rays and the Dodgers, and despite the fact that he was turning 39, I didn’t mind at all. Here’s me from a few weeks before he signed:

The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed relief pitcher Jamey Wright to a one-year deal.
