Dotel becomes glue for Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Tigers late-inning reliever Octavio Dotel is one of those players who becomes glue for a ballclub. He often takes the mound and patches together a game on the verge of breaking the other way, and is a clubhouse leader who brings professionalism and harmony. Dotel threw five innings of no-hit relief in the 2012 playoffs and was central in Game 1 of the American...

The cost of letting Octavio Dotel go

Earlier, I wondered aloud how different the record of the 2012 St. Louis Cardinals in close games would have been had they kept reliever Octavio Dotel. This time, let’s look at the situation from financial perspective. In reality, the cost of acquiring Dotel in the first place was an unidentifiable percentage of Colby Rasmus, shipped off to Toronto. The cost to keep him in 2012...

Dotel eager to set mark by pitching for 13th team

Octavio Dotel is embracing the record he's about to set - even though it's the mark of a journeyman, not a star. When Dotel takes the mound for the Detroit Tigers this season, he'll become the first player to appear in a game for 13 franchises.

Octavio Dotel - Have Arm Will Travel

Before the gas prices made it prohibitive, RVing was a major retirement goal for people in this country. Every neighborhood had at least one of the mobile fortresses parked in someone's yard.

Why Did The Cardinals Decline Dotel’s $3.5MM Option?

I’m reading all these raves that the Mets are strong players for Octavio Dotel… Really? I mean do the people writing these headlines really belive that? Let me dispel that myth for you if I may… First of all, you may have already read that Jonathan Broxton – a much more inferior reliever than Dotel – just signed a one year $4 million dollar deal with the Kansas City...
