Mad Dog no Glory

Greg Maddux to the Dodgers. Did that make you shudder? Well, get used to the idea.

The 353-game winner is headed back into the pennant race, according to an anonymous source familiar with the deal. Maddux, who is ninth on the all-time wins list, needs just two more victories to pass Roger Clemens. And he'll get them in LA.

The 42-year-old righty will return to the club he visited in 2006, when he went 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA in 12 starts for the Dodgers, who are tied for first with the Arizona Diamondbacks in the weak NL West. Maddux is 6-9 with a 3.99 ERA in 26 starts for the last-place San Diego Padres this season.

No word on who the Friars will get for the future Hall of Famer, but it's pretty clear the Brad Penny is no longer the man.
