TUESDAY: According to Tony Jackson of the L.A. Daily News, the Dodgers are "almost certain" to choose Brad Penny’s $2MM buyout over his $9.25MM option for 2009. Jackson believes the decision will be made soon.
Penny left the Dodgers without saying goodbye; he was displeased the team did not exercise his ’09 option in the spring. He dealt with shoulder problems throughout the season.
