Dodgers sign aging Mueller

Bill Mueller continues the exodus of Boston Red Sox who names are pronounced "Miller" and signs for two years with the Dodgers, the Times website says. The third baseman has been a decent enough hitter in his day, with a better on-base average than most Dodgers even before his stats started enjoying the Fenway Park bonus a few years ago. The Dodgers just hope his day still has enough daylight in it to help. Mueller will turn 35 at spring training and only once has played more than 150 games in a season.
